Diseases We Treat

Coronary artery disease

(Coronary artery disease develops when the major blood vessels that supply your heart become diseased)

  • Angina (a form of chest pain that comes from the heart)

  • Heart Attack (Myocardial Infarction)

  • History of stents or bypass surgery (CABG)

  • Evaluation to rule out and treat heart blockages

 

Chest pain evaluation

 

Dyspnea (Shortness of Breath) evaluation

Abnormal EKGs

Preventive cardiology including cardiovascular risk screening

(By living a healthy lifestyle, you can help keep your blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels normal and lower your risk for heart disease and heart attack)

High Cholesterol (Hyperlipidemia)

High blood pressure (Hypertension)

 

Heart rhythm disturbances (Arrhythmia)

      (One of the fast heartbeats that affect the upper chambers)

      (One of the fast heartbeats that affect the upper chambers)

      (PVCs are extra heartbeats that begin in one of the heart's two lower pumping chambers, the                    ventricles)

  • Pacemaker and Defibrillator follow up

  • Prolonged QTc

Stroke prevention & evaluation

Pre-cardiac eval for surgeries, heart-affecting drugs, DOT, and athletics

 

Syncope (Fainting)

 

Structural Heart disease

      (Disease of the heart muscle that makes it harder for the heart to pump blood to the rest of the                body. Cardiomyopathy can lead to heart failure.)

      (Sometimes known as congestive heart failure — occurs when the heart muscle doesn't pump                blood as well as it should. When this happens, blood often backs up and fluid can build up in                    the lungs, causing shortness of breath)

      (A heart murmur is a sound made by turbulent blood flow within the heart)

      (In heart valve disease, one or more of the valves in your heart doesn't work properly)

      (Pulmonary hypertension happens when the pressure in the blood vessels leading from the                      heart to the lungs is too high).

      (Pericarditis is inflammation of the pericardium, a sac-like structure with two thin layers of                  tissue that surround the heart to hold it in place and help it work)

      (Endocarditis is a life-threatening inflammation of the inner lining of your heart's chambers and        valves)

      (Congenital heart disease is one or more problems with the heart's structure that exist since                    birth. Congenital means that you're born with the condition)

Arterial diseases

      (An aortic aneurysm occurs when a weak spot in the wall of the aorta begins to bulge. An                          aneurysm can occur anywhere in the aorta. Having an aortic aneurysm increases the risk of a                  tear in the aortic lining which is aortic dissection)

      (Carotid artery disease occurs when fatty deposits (plaques) clog the blood vessels that deliver                blood to your brain and head)

      (Renal artery stenosis is the narrowing of one or more arteries that carry blood to your kidneys)

      (Mesenteric ischemia occurs when narrowed or blocked arteries restrict blood flow to your                      small intestine)

      (Narrowing of arteries that carry blood to the upper extremity)

 

Vein-related (venous) diseases

      (Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins. Any vein that is close to the skin's surface                                [superficial] can become varicosed. Varicose veins most commonly affect the veins in the legs)

      (Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition that occurs when the venous wall and/or                        valves in the leg veins are not working effectively, making it difficult for blood to return to the                  heart from the legs. CVI causes blood to “pool” or collect in these veins)

  • Leg Ulcer due to venous disease

  • Leg Edema

  • May-Thurner - Iliac Vein Compression/Stenosis

  • Pulmonary Embolism

      (Pulmonary embolism is a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in your lungs)

      (Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the        deep veins in the body, usually in the legs)

  • Spider veins

      (Spider veins appear as thin, red lines or as weblike networks of blood vessels on the surface                  of the skin. Spider veins, a mild form of varicose veins, typically appear on the legs and feet.)
