Exploring every chamber of cardiology.
Our clinical cardiologists care for the full array of complex cardiac diagnosis, congestive heart failures, arythmia and prevention. We have among us over 100 physicians, many of whom are board certified in a variety of sub-specialties, enabling us to perform a full complement of tests and procedures for the benefit of our patients. Browse the full list below.
Athletic Heart Disease and Screening
Screening athletes for heart problems prior to exercise or participation in sports can help find hidden conditions that could lead to heart attacks or other serious heart problems.
Cardiac CT Imaging
Cardiac CT is a painless imaging test that takes three-dimensional pictures of the heart. Doctors who specialize in cardiac CT use the test to look for problems with the heart’s muscle, arteries and valves.
Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation may cause short- or long-term heart problems. Doctors who specialize in cardio-oncology treat the cardiovascular side effects of cancer treatment.
Carotid and Vascular Imaging
Carotid and vascular imaging is used to diagnose and find the cause of a stroke or to look for narrowing in the carotid artery. Doctors also use carotid imaging to look for other vascular malformations.
Clinical cardiology focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and managing heart disease. A clinical cardiologist is usually the first specialist patients will see if their doctor suspects they have a heart problem.
Echocardiologists specialize in the interpretation of echocardiograms—a test that uses high frequency ultrasound waves to create pictures of the heart.
Electrophysiology Arrhythmias and Ablations
Electrophysiology is the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal electrical activities of the heart. The following doctors are board certified in this specialty:
Heart failure cardiologists have sophisticated knowledge of medications and medical devices that can help patients with heart failure live a longer, healthier life. The following doctors are board certified in this specialty:
Interventional cardiologists perform minimally invasive, catheter-based treatments for heart problems (for example, angioplasty to unblock clogged arteries around the heart). Interventional procedures are typically performed in a hospital’s catheterization lab. The following doctors are board certified in this specialty:
Doctors who specialize in lipid disorders work closely with patients to prevent high cholesterol, diabetes, and other metabolic diseases that often contribute to heart and vascular disease.
Nuclear cardiology tests are non-invasive and use extremely small amounts of radioactive tracers to look at blood flow through the heart and evaluate its pumping functions. Nuclear cardiologists specialize in interpreting these tests.
Pacemakers and AICDs
Pacemakers and automated implantable cardioverter defibrillators (AICDs) are devices that use electrical pulses to regulate the heart’s rhythms. Doctors implant these devices to monitor and regulate the heart’s electrical activity.
Peripheral Vascular Disease
Peripheral vascular disease affects the circulatory system that supplies the arms, legs, and organs with blood. Specialists in this field manage and treat patients who may develop organ failure and arm and leg problems when these blood vessels are narrowed or blocked.
Preventative cardiologists have a special interest and training in the prevention of heart disease. They work with patients to assess their risk of heart disease and stop problems before they happen.
Structural Heart Disease
Congenital heart disease and other abnormalities of the heart’s valves and vessels are referred to as structural heart disease. Doctors who specialize in this field may use surgical or percutanious procedures to repair defects that may threaten a patient’s health.
Valvular Heart Disease
The heart has four valves: the aortic and mitral valves on the left, and the pulmonary and tricuspid valves on the right. Valvular heart specialists may use medications, procedures or surgery to help patients who have damaged or diseased valves.
Venous disease refers to conditions that affect the body’s veins. The following doctors are board certified in this specialty:
Women’s Cardiovascular Health
Heart disease affects as many women as it does men. In some cases, the symptoms of the disease can differ between the sexes. Cardiologists with a special interest in treating women’s heart problems understand these differences and work with their patients to achieve a heart-healthy life.
