Treating Complex Heart Conditions

At Valley Presbyterian Hospital, specialists diagnose and treat patients with critical heart and vascular conditions. Heart and circulatory system disorders may be caused by structural conditions such as birth defects, arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats), obstructions to blood flow in and around the heart or other organs, or other causes. Heart and vascular system disorders should be taken seriously. They require a fast and precise diagnosis, with treatment guided by evidence-based medicine.

The expert, multidisciplinary medical team at Valley Presbyterian includes cardiologists and vascular surgeons. The medical staff responds quickly and is dedicated to improving our patients’ lives, deploying preventive, rehabilitative, diagnostic, interventional, and surgical treatments for a broad spectrum of heart and vascular conditions.

Our comprehensive cardiac and vascular services include advanced diagnostic technologies, such as echocardiography and vascular ultrasound. These new technologies are noninvasive or minimally invasive for most heart and vascular conditions. We strive to use the least invasive therapeutic options available so our patients heal more quickly.

Los Angeles County Emergency Medical Services has designated Valley Presbyterian Hospital as a STEMI Receiving Center. Paramedics bring patients having heart attacks to our Emergency Services unit where they are quickly examined.
