Cardiovascular Services

Our Cardiologists Treat Complex Heart Conditions

At Valley Presbyterian Hospital, our doctors 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, and they require a fast and precise diagnosis. Our treatment is guided by evidence-based medicine.

The expert, multidisciplinary medical team at Valley Presbyterian includes cardiologists and vascular surgeons. Our medical staff responds quickly and is dedicated to improving our patients’ lives. We employ 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 non- 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.
