Cardiology

Cardiologists treat the heart and the blood vessels that supply vital nutrients to every organ and cell in the body. Diseases of the cardiovascular system can affect the function of other organs such as the brain, lungs and kidneys. In turn, diseases of other organs can affect the function of the heart and the circulation.

Structural heart disease refers to diseases that affect the heart’s valves or other structures of the heart. The most common involve the aortic valve or mitral valve.

Minimally invasive surgical procedures provide an alternative to open-heart surgery for many patients. Benefits to minimally invasive procedures include quicker recovery times, improved outcomes and often fewer complications.
