Cardiology & Cardiovascular
Specialty Care for Heart Health
Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine have to do with diagnosing and treating disorders of the heart and blood vessels. Examples of these problems include:
- congenital heart defects (starting from birth)
- coronary artery disease
- heart failure
- valvular heart disease
Physicians specializing in this field of medicine include:
- Cardiologists who use non-surgical treatments
- Cardiovascular surgeons who operate on the heart and related blood vessels
- Cardiothoracic surgeons operate on the heart and lungs, and related vessels
Diagnosing heart or vascular conditions usually involves different kinds of tests, such as blood tests, stress tests and x-rays. Treatments range from special diets, exercise and medications to special types of therapy, medical devices and surgery.
Your primary-care provider can help you find a heart specialist if you need this kind of care.
