Heart Conditions We Care for

You can get treatment with us for a long list of heart conditions, including:

  • Aortic disease – The aorta, the body's largest blood vessel, develops an aneurysm (bulge) or dissection (tear)
  • Arrhythmia – The heart’s electrical system can cause irregular heartbeats
  • Congenital heart disease – Heart abnormalities that are present at birth
  • Heart attack – Fatty deposits can clog or block blood flow from coronary arteries to the heart
  • Heart failure – The heart can't pump enough blood through the body
  • High blood pressure – The pressure of the blood flow against artery walls becomes too high - also known as hypertension
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy – The heart muscle thickens and makes the heart work harder to pump, while limiting blood flow
  • Limb preservation – Leg loss due to diabetes or peripheral artery disease can be prevented
  • Peripheral vascular disease – Blockages or blood clots in blood vessels in the lower leg
  • Pulmonary hypertension – A lung disorder causing high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries
  • Valve disease – Conditions affecting the heart valves can disrupt blood circulation
