Clinical Cardiology Section
The Section of Clinical Cardiology is often times the area where patients first have access to specialized inpatient and outpatient heart care and long-term management of their conditions. We offer the latest innovations in cardiac care and clinical therapies to patients of all ages. We provide state-of-the-art tests and procedures to help make an accurate diagnosis and create a treatment plan. We see patients with very common heart problems, such as angina, artery problems, valvular heart disease, and heart failure. We also treat patients with some very rare forms of heart disease, including those who have been told by other doctors that their condition cannot be treated.
Our cardiologists use a broad range of treatment options to give each patient the best care possible. These include lifestyle modification recommendations, medications and procedures. Our cardiologists also work closely with our team of cardiovascular surgeons, should surgery be the best treatment option.
