Medical Conditions

Over the past several years, a lot of progress has been made in the treatment of cardiovascular disease, consisting of the heart, arteries, veins and capillaries.,

By controlling blood pressure and LDL cholesterol, making healthy lifestyle and dietary choices, and if necessary, relying on effective and sometimes minimally invasive procedures and medications, you have every reason to remain hopeful.

The most common risk factors for cardiovascular disease seem to be hypertension and atherosclerosis. Some of the most common conditions our cardiologists treat are the following:

  • Coronary artery disease:  Damage or disease in the heart’s major blood vessels.
  • Atherosclerosis:  When fatty deposits accumulate within the arteries.
  • High blood pressure (hypertension): A condition in which the force of blood against the artery walls is too high.
  • Cardiac arrest:  Sudden loss of heart function, resulting in loss of consciousness and cessation of breathing.
  • Arrhythmia: Too rapid, too slow, or improper heartbeats.
  • Angina: Chest pain or discomfort when the heart muscle isn’t getting enough oxygen-rich blood.
  • Peripheral artery disease:  Reduce blood flow to the limbs caused by narrow blood vessels.
  • Stroke:  Brain damage when a blood vessel that fees the brain gets blocked, usually from a blood clot.
  • Congenital heart disease: Pre-birth heart abnormality.
  • Congestive heart failure:  A condition where the body’s need for blood and oxygen isn’t being met because the heart isn’t working efficiently.
  • Heart valve issues: When the heart values don’t open or close properly, either not allowing the blood to flow through properly or allowing blood to leak through.
