Heart & Vascular
Skilled cardiologists who can help you fight heart disease
Have you been keeping up with your heart health? Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in the United States. Many people remain unaware of what a danger this condition poses to their health because there are usually no noticeable symptoms. Often people never find out they have heart disease until a heart attack, stroke or other cardiac event occurs.
Thankfully, it is not impossible to detect the signs of heart disease before one of these events. So long as you maintain regular physicals and keep up with your blood pressure, diet and healthy lifestyle, your doctor should be able to give you an idea of your heart disease risk factors.
You can work for a healthier heart even after a heart attack
A heart attack is a serious situation, but it does not mean your health is ruined forever. The artery plaque that clogs arteries and causes most forms of heart disease can be removed through surgery and lifestyle changes.
If you have survived a cardiac event, you have been given your wake-up call. It’s time to take the reins on your health and get your blood pumping freely again.
