Conditions We Treat

Surgeons operate on a patient

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm is when the wall of an artery becomes thin and weak in the aorta.

A nurse holds a bedside conversation with a patient.

Aortic Disease

Aortic disease includes conditions of the aorta, the main blood vessel in the body. 

heart-model

Aortic Dissection

Aortic dissection is when the walls of the aorta tear and separate and is life-threatening.

aortic-ulcer-and-hematoma

Aortic Ulcer and Hematoma

An ulcer is erosion into the aortic lining and a hematoma is bruising of the aortic wall.

arrhythmia

Arrhythmia

Irregular heartbeats indicate heart rhythm problems, also called arrhythmias.

atrial-fibrillation

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia).

atrial-flutter

Atrial Flutter

Atrial flutter is a fast, but regular, rhythm that occurs in the atria of the heart.

bicuspid-aortic-valve

Bicuspid Aortic Valve

A bicuspid aortic valve occurs when the aortic valve only has two leaflets, instead of three.

blood-clots

Blood Clots

A blood clot is a semisolid mass of coagulated blood.

carotid-artery-disease

Carotid Artery Disease

Carotid artery disease (CAD) occurs when major neck arteries become narrowed or blocked.

coronary-heart-disease

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the narrowing of the coronary arteries.

chest-pain

Chest Pain

Chest pain is sharp, dull, or burning discomfort in the chest.

congenital-heart-defects-connective-tissue-disorder-blood-vessel-complications

Congenital Heart Defects

Congenital heart defects are abnormalities in the structure of the heart from birth.

cushing-syndrome

Connective Tissue Disorder and Blood Vessel Complications

Connective tissue disorders are conditions that weaken the structural framework of the body.

usher-syndrome

Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

Coronary artery bypass graft surgery is a procedure used to treat coronary artery disease.

fertility-preservation

Familial Aortic Disease

Familial (genetic) aortic disease include aortic conditions that run in families.

heart-care-doctor-consult-WO8I4233-square

Heart Attack

A heart attack occurs when the flow of blood in a coronary artery is blocked.

heart-block

Heart Block

A heart block is when electricity doesn't pass through the heart's electrical pathways correctly.

heart-failure

Heart Failure

Heart failure is when your heart can't pump enough blood to meet your body's needs.

heart-valve-disease

Heart Valve Disease

Heart valve disease can cause heart rate and rhythm problems and complications.

high-blood-pressure

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is when the force of blood against artery walls is abnormally high.

high-cholesterol

High Cholesterol

High cholesterol means you have high levels of certain types of fats and waxy substances in your blood.

low-vision

Long QT Syndrome

Long QT syndrome is when heart muscle cells take extra time to recover after each heart beat.

marfan-syndrome

Marfan Syndrome

Marfan syndrome is a connective tissue disorder caused by abnormal fibrillin production.

mitral-valve-regurgitation

Mitral Valve Regurgitation

Mitral valve regurgitation is when the mitral valve leaks blood back to the lungs.

pectus-excavatum

Pectus Excavatum

Pectus excavatum is a condition in which a person's breastbone is sunken into the chest.

peripheral-artery-disease

Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) occurs when arteries in arms or legs are narrowed or blocked.

sick-sinus-syndrome

Sick Sinus Syndrome

Sick sinus syndrome occurs when the normal pacemaker of the heart does not work properly.

structural-heart-disease

Structural Heart Disease

Structural heart disease includes heart conditions involving heart tissue or valve structure.

sudden-cardiac-arrest

Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Sudden cardiac arrest is the sudden, abrupt loss of heart function.

supraventricular-tachycardia

Supraventricular Tachycardia

Supraventricular tachycardia describes a group of fast heart rhythms.

ventricular-tachycardia
