According to the American Heart Association, more than 5 million Americans are living with heart failure, with about 670,000 new cases diagnosed every year. Many people are able to manage their heart failure with medication and other therapies. For others, heart failure can become advanced, greatly diminishing their quality of life.
That's why Dignity Health Heart and Vascular Institute of Greater Sacramento created the Advanced Heart Disease Clinic in 2013. The multidisciplinary team at the Advanced Heart Disease Clinic works closely with patients through every step of their treatment process, from screening to diagnosis through treatment and recovery and return to everyday living. We are leaders in minimally invasive treatment options and care that is tailored to each unique individual.
The Advanced Heart Disease Clinic team includes: Administration from Dignity Health Heart and Vascular Institute and Mercy General Hospital; cardiologists; cardiovascular surgeons; financial specialists; registered nurses; nurse practitioners; a social worker and a registered dietician. Access to research coordinators are also available on site.
