Heart Conditions We Treat

Learn more about heart conditions we treat:

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

    Aneurysms occur most commonly in the aorta, the main artery of the chest and abdomen. The aorta is the body's largest artery and carries blood flow from the heart to all vital organs, and eventually to the legs and feet. Aortic aneurysms are caused by a progressive weakening of the aortic wall which results in a dilatation, or "ballooning" of the vessel.
  • Aortic Aneurysm

    Our heart experts provide advanced treatment for aortic aneurysms (a weakening of your blood vessel), including minimally invasive aneurysm repair.
  • Aortic Dissection

    Our aortic disease specialists treat aortic dissection, a tear in the aorta, using minimally invasive endovascular procedures.
  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Some cases of valve narrowing do not require treatment, but our doctors may recommend repair or replacement for more serious problems.
  • Arrhythmia

    Unlike many medical offices, we provide a full range of care for all types of heartbeat irregularities, known as arrhythmias.
  • Atrial Fibrillation

    We offer several effective treatments for atrial fibrillation, a common arrhythmia that can lead to heart failure and stroke.
  • Carotid Artery Disease

    The carotid artery is responsible for supplying blood to the brain. Carotid artery disease refers to the narrowing of the carotid arteries, most commonly from fatty deposits called plaque building up within the artery.
  • Cerebrovascular Disease

    Cerebrovascular disease refers to conditions that affect the circulation of blood to the brain. Cerebrovascular disease is usually caused by atherosclerosis – a hardening of the arteries. The most common forms of cerebrovascular disease are: cerebral thrombosis, cerebral embolism and cerebral hemorrhage.
  • Congenital Heart Disease

    We provide long-term, comprehensive care for patients with congenital heart disease, starting at birth and continuing through adulthood.
  • Coronary Artery Disease

    Our heart experts offer advanced approaches to treating coronary artery disease, including minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery.
  • Deep Venous Thrombosis

    Deep venous thrombosis is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside a part of the body. It mainly affects the large veins in the lower leg and thigh.
  • Heart Attack

    Our heart specialists provide rapid, effective treatment for heart attacks, including surgery and cardiac catheterization procedures.
  • Heart Failure

    We provide advanced, comprehensive care for heart failure patients, including ventricular assist devices (VADs) and heart transplantation.
  • High Blood Pressure

    We encourage you to undergo regular screenings for high blood pressure, so we can detect and treat problems before they cause symptoms.
  • Mesenteric Artery Ischemia

    Mesenteric artery ischemia occurs when there is a narrowing or blockage of one or more of the three major arteries that supply the small and large intestines. These are called the mesenteric arteries.
  • Peripheral Artery Disease

    Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a condition of the blood vessels that leads to narrowing and hardening of the arteries that supply blood to your limbs, which can injure nerves and other tissues.

  • PSVT

    We offer a range of effective treatments for paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT), marked by a rise in heart rate that begins and ends suddenly.
  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Our heart experts offer advanced treatment for pulmonary hypertension, a type of high blood pressure, including pulmonary thromboendarterectomy, or PTE.
  • Renal Artery Disease/Renovascular Hypertension

    Renovascular hypertension is high blood pressure due to narrowing of the arteries that carry blood to the kidneys. This condition is also called renal artery stenosis.
  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms

    Thoracic aortic aneurysms cause a bulge in a section of the thoracic aorta and result in a weakening of the main artery that carries blood from the heart to the body. As this bulge increases in size, the risk of rupture and internal bleeding also increases.
  • Valve Disease

    Our doctors have the experience needed to care for all heart valve problems, including narrowing, leaking and uncommon conditions.
  • Valve Regurgitation

    We provide the care needed for leaky valves, a condition that may not require treatment but can also strain and damage the heart.
  • Venous Insufficiency

    Venous insufficiency is a condition in which the veins have problems sending blood from the legs back to the heart.

  • Ventricular Tachycardia

    Ventricular fibrillation and tachycardia are the most dangerous arrhythmias, but our treatments can manage or cure the conditions.
