Heart and Vascular Conditions We Treat

Having a heart or vascular condition can be distressing, but knowing more about your condition can help relieve your fears. Our caring staff guides you every step of the way through diagnosis, treatment and recovery, helping you resume a full, active life.

We specialize in comprehensive care for patients with a wide range of cardiovascular conditions, including:

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

The aorta is the body's largest artery, carrying blood from the heart to the rest of the body. An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a weak, bulging area in the wall of the aorta where it passes through the abdomen.

Arrhythmia

An arrhythmia describes any type of abnormal heartbeat, such as those that are too fast or too slow, or extra or skipped beats.

Congestive Heart Failure

This condition occurs when the heart weakens and cannot pump enough blood through the body. Blood and excess fluid begin to back up in the veins and into the lungs, legs and feet.

Heart Attack

A heart attack happens when an obstruction, usually a blood clot in the coronary (heart) artery slows or stops the flow of oxygen and blood to the heart.

Peripheral Artery Disease

Narrowing of the arteries outside the heart is called peripheral artery disease. It is caused by atherosclerosis, the buildup of plaque along artery walls.

Renal Artery Stenosis

This condition is narrowing of the renal (kidney) arteries, which is also usually caused by atherosclerosis. It can lead to kidney disease and failure, among other complications.

Stroke

A stroke is a medical emergency that happens when blood flow to the brain is slowed or blocked. Brain cells begin to die within minutes, so immediate medical attention is critical to a full recovery.

Learn more about these conditions and their symptoms, causes, treatment, prevention and more in our Health Library.
