Highly trusted in matters of the heart, our heart and vascular doctors are ready to meet your unique heart care needs.
A cardiovascular condition or disease refers to a problem with your heart or blood vessels (vascular system). These conditions affect how well the heart functions and moves blood throughout the body. Without proper treatment, some vascular or heart problems can be life threatening, resulting in heart failure and even death.
At Dignity Health, our heart and vascular departments offer leading-edge cardiac care and state-of-the-art treatment, encompassing a wide array of cardiovascular services. This includes the latest diagnostic and imaging tests, noninvasive therapies and treatments, and minimally invasive surgical procedures for conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels.
If you have symptoms of arrhythmia such as a fluttering feeling in your chest, the sensation that your heart is beating too fast or slow, dizziness, or shortness of breath, your doctor may refer you to a cardiac electrophysiologist. Electrophysiology refers to a group of heart treatments that can reduce your symptoms, improve your quality of life, and reduce your risk of a complication like blood clots.
If you are at risk for heart disease, preventive heart care with Dignity Health may help you avoid heart-related health complications. Your heart care team will involve a variety of cardiac care specialists, including cardiologists, nurses, technicians, nutritionists, physical therapists, and others.
Our hospitals are Accredited Chest Pain Centers designated by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. This recognition is given to hospitals that have achieved a high level of expertise in treating patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack.
