Cancer treatments, including radiation to the chest and certain types of chemotherapy, may increase the risk for heart disease. Some heart complications can occur during cancer therapy, while others may develop decades after treatment. The Cardio-Oncology program at Intermountain Medical Center strives to help people who receive cancer treatment live the healthiest lives possible. The Cardio-Oncology program includes a multidisciplinary team that specializes in providing state-of-the-art care of cancer patients with (or at increased risk for developing) cardiovascular disease.

About Our Program

Our Team

Our team includes cardiologists, oncologists, and radiation oncologists who collaborate to provide comprehensive, coordinated heart care for people with cancer. They are dedicated to caring for people in any phase of cancer treatment who are at risk for developing heart disease or who have existing heart disease.

Our Services

Our cardiologists can make recommendations to oncologists to minimize potential heart toxicity from cancer treatments.
  • Provide a plan for monitoring of heart function during and after certain types of cancer treatment.
  • Evaluate heart symptoms that arise during or after cancer treatment.
  • Monitor and manage heart complications that may arise during or after cancer treatment.
