Conditions We Treat

Our health system provides treatment for the following cardiac conditions, among others:

  • Abnormal EKG – An electrocardiogram (EKG) is a type of test that measures the electrical activity in your heart. If your reading comes back with irregular results, there could be a number of explanations. In some cases, the irregularity in the reading reflects a normal inconsistency and poses no health risk. In other cases, an abnormal EKG can be a sign of a heart attack, a serious arrhythmia, or another significant problem.
  • Atrial Septal Defects (ASD) – An atrial septal defect is an opening in the wall or “septum” between the two upper heart chambers or “atria.” This is a birth defect that occasionally goes unnoticed until adulthood. While in many cases an ASD while close on its own, others may require surgical correction.
  • Atrial Fibrillation – Atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat that may result in poor blood flow.
  • Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) – The most common form of heart disease, CAD occurs when the arties that pump blood to your heart muscle become heart and narrow due to cholesterol buildup.
  • Cardiac Arrhythmias – A cardiac arrhythmia is an irregularity in your heartbeat. In some cases the heartbeat may be too fast; in others too slow; in others simply irregular.
  • Chest Pain –There can be many causes for chest pain, ranging from gastrointestinal issues such as acid reflex / heartburn to muscular problems such as bruised / broken ribs or sore muscles to lung issues such as bronchitis or pneumonia to a heart-related issues such as a heart attack.
  • Heart Murmur– A heart murmur is an “extra” or abnormal sound that occurs during the heartbeat. In some cases, this murmur is harmless. In others, it could be caused by a damaged heart valve or other issues that require medical attention.
  • Hyperlipidemia – Hyperlipidemia is a common condition that occurs when a patient has a high concentration of fat particles or “lipids” in their bloodstream. In most cases, this simply means high cholesterol / high triglycerides.
  • Hypertension – Hypertension is another term for dangerously high blood pressure. This means the force of the patient’s bloodstream against their artery walls is too high. Blood pressure is typically considered high at 140 / 90, and severely or dangerously high at 180 / 120. High blood pressure can lead to serious health risks including heart disease and stroke, if left untreated.
  • Mitral Valve Prolapse / Mitral Valve Regurgitation – The mitral valve is the valve that facilitates blood flow from the upper and lower left chambers of the heart—the left atrium and the left ventricle. Mitral valve prolapse occurs when this valve improperly closes. Mitral valve regurgitation occurs when this valve does not close tightly, resulting in a backward blood flow in the heart.
  • Palpitations – The sensation of your heart “skipping a beat” or racing is known as a palpitation. There are many causes of heart palpitations, but in most cases these events are harmless. In some cases, heart palpitations can signify an irregular heartbeat or arrhythmia, which may need treatment.
