Be an Active Participant in Your Cardiology Treatment
A diagnosis of heart or vascular disease often begins with your primary care doctor who recommends more specialized cardiology services. When you are dealing with a complex health condition, it is important that you find the right match between you and your cardiologist.
Your cardiologist will evaluate your symptoms and medical history ad may recommend additional testing to determine a specific diagnosis. Your condition may be managed with medication or by specialty cardiology services. Treatments for heart disease range from low-tech to high-tech.
Our cardiologists provide invasive and interventional cardiology services. Invasive cardiology involves entry into the heart or central circulation. Interventional cardiology uses catheter-based techniques to treat coronary artery, valvular and congenital cardiac diseases.
The major risk factors for heart disease (also called cardiovascular disease or CVD) are smoking, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, obesity, diabetes, age, gender and heredity. Some risk factors can be treated or modified, and some, like heredity or race, cannot. By controlling as many risk factors as possible through lifestyle change, medication or both, you can reduce your risk of heart disease.
