Heart Conditions We Treat
Our physicians are at the top of their field and actively seek to stay on the cutting edge of cardiovascular medicine. They help treat conditions such as:
- Aortic aneurysm, an abnormal enlargement or bulging of the aorta that are dangerous when they have the potential to rupture. Learn more about aortic aneurysms.
- Arrhythmia, a heart rhythm that is too fast, too slow, or erratic. Arrhythmias can be life-threatening or completely harmless depending on the type. Learn more about arrhythmias.
- Blood pressure issues, which occur when a disease state causes blood pressure to stay persistently high, low, or erratic. The most common blood pressure disorders are high blood pressure (hypertension) and low blood pressure (hypotension). Learn more about blood pressure issues.
- Congenital heart defects, structural problems with the heart that are present at birth. If left untreated, they can lead to secondary heart diseases like arrhythmias, high blood pressure, or congestive heart failure. Learn more about congenital heart defects.
- Coronary artery disease, the result of plaque building up in your coronary arteries, causing them to narrow and become rigid. As a result, blood flow to the heart can become restricted and the plaque can rupture, leading to a stroke or potentially fatal heart attack. Learn more about coronary artery disease.
- Heart failure, sometimes referred to as congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart no longer has the capacity to pump enough blood to keep the body functioning normally. Learn more about congestive heart failure.
- Heart infection, which occurs when an irritant such as bacteria, a virus, a parasite, or a chemical reaches your heart muscle. An infection can cause inflammation or damage to your heart's inner lining, valves, outer membrane, or the heart muscle itself. Learn more about heart infections.
- Valvular heart disease, the result of damage to or a defect in one of the heart's four valves: the mitral, aortic, tricuspid, or pulmonary. Learn more about heart valve disease.
- Vascular disease is a blood circulation disorder in which the blood vessels outside of the heart and brain become narrowed or blocked, or frequently spasm. Learn more about peripheral vascular disease.
- Varicose veins are swollen, bluish, twisted veins just beneath the surface of your skin. They most often appear in the legs or feet, mainly because standing and walking increase the pressure in the veins of your lower body. Learn more about varicose veins.
