HEART SPECIALTY SERVICES
Our Clinical Cardiology Services are often the entry point for patients to access specialized inpatient and outpatient heart care and long-term management for their conditions. We offer the latest innovations in cardiac care and clinical therapies to patients of all ages, providing state-of-the-art tests and procedures to assist in accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. We see patients with very common heart problems such as chest pain, palpitations and coronary artery disease, as well as those with rare forms of heart disease.
Women's Heart Specialty
At the Heart + Wellness Institute, we are renowned for our Women's Heart Specialty Services. Our Heart Services for Women focus on symptoms, signs, conditions and treatments particular to women. From recognizing and treating women's unique presentation of coronary artery disease, to palpitations, to congestive heart failure, to heart condition management during pregnancy or perimenopause, we have the experience and expertise to deliver the best of care to you.
Our Preventive Cardiology Program helps those who already have heart and vascular disease and those who are at a risk of developing it. We offer comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessment and recommendations for improving risk and leading a healthy life. Programs include nutritional services, lipid clinic, prescriptive exercise programs, and stress testing and educational programs for patients and healthcare providers. Our innovative lifestyle program, HeartStar®, created by our own Dr. Manohar, has proven excellence in improving health and wellness.
Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing
Our Electrophysiology and Pacing Services include evaluation and management for palpitations, syncope/passing out, atrial fibrillation, arrhythmia, and pacemaker checks. Diagnostic testing includes Holter Monitors, Event Recorders, and Tilt Table Testing.
Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplant
Our specialized Heart Failure Care takes a multifaceted approach evaluating each individual's cause of heart failure, with specific directed treatment. State of the Art evaluation, monitoring, and treatment may include studies such as B-type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP); heart muscle biopsy and heart catheterization, 3-D cardiac evaluation, MRI imaging, medical- and device-based therapies including cardiac resynchronization therapy, and the newest and the best medications.
The Vascular Medicine Services are a comprehensive approach for diseases of the vascular system, including peripheral artery disease, carotid artery disease, endothelial dysfunction, diffuse and premature atherosclerosis, and conditions such as Raynaud's disease. We diagnose and manage arterial, venous and lymphatic disorders, as well as the acute and long-term care of patients with hypercoagulable disorders.
The Heart + Wellness Institute Stress Imaging Center specializes in obtaining and interpreting images of the heart to diagnose and treat heart disease patients. Our state of the art 3-D, echocardiography, vascular ultrasound and nuclear technology assist us in diagnosing and managing both common and unusual heart and vascular conditions. Some of these include evaluating coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, heart failure, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, aortic aneurysm, patent foramen ovale, constrictive pericarditis. Other imaging techniques used include Tranesophageal echocardiography (TEE), cardiac MRI and coronary CTA.
Our Invasive Cardiology Services include left and right heart catheterization for evaluation of heart pressures, cardiac outputs, oxygen saturation, and shunting; coronary angiography to evaluate for coronary artery disease; as well as endomyocardial biopsy. These procedures assist us to make the best treatment plan for you, centered around your specific findings.
