Your primary care doctor may refer you to a cardiologist if you have symptoms of a heart problem, a history of heart disease in your family, or to help manage an ongoing cardiovascular condition. Our heart doctors work to protect and restore function to the heart and blood vessels, reduce symptoms, and improve everyday life.
Routine cardiovascular care can help prevent heart and vascular disease, as well as identify underlying conditions. If you’d like to know more about your cardiovascular health, take our free risk assessments for heart disease, stroke, or diabetes.
Depending on your condition, your cardiologist can provide a variety of services personalized to your needs.
Diagnostic imaging and testing, such as electrocardiogram (ECG), looks at the structures and functions of your heart and vascular system to determine any necessary treatment.
Your treatment options may include medication to reduce your symptoms and prevent complications. If you need surgery, our cardiovascular surgeons can perform minimally invasive procedures, such as angioplasty and stenting, or open heart surgeries like heart bypass surgery and aortic aneurysm repair. Our cardiac rehabilitation specialists can help you recover.
The Sarvanand Heart and Brain Center at Memorial Hospital provides comprehensive cardiovascular care to help improve your heart health. We’re one of the most advanced centers for treating cardiovascular diseases such as congenital heart defects or heart attack in the Southern Valley.
You may receive heart care in a Dignity Health Central California hospital, specialized heart center, or outpatient clinic. Most of our services are performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to go home the same day. A minimally invasive procedure or open surgery may require a hospital stay, along with time in a cardiac intensive care unit.
No matter what type of care you need, your provider at Dignity Health Central California will explain the details so you’ll know how to prepare and what to expect. When it’s time to go home, you’ll be given special instructions regarding medication, activity levels that are safe, and follow-up care.
