Overview of the Division

The Division of Coronary Diseases is involved in prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation for heart disease in order to achieve optimal results for patients. The specialties of the Division include angina pectoris, acute myocardial infarction, acute and chronic cardiac failure, ischemic heart disease, and chest pain and dyspnea (shortness of breath) of unknown cause. Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and other imaging techniques enable accurate diagnosis of different types of heart problems. Atherosclerosis is the underlying cause of most cardiac disorders. Drug therapy and other interventions are tailored to meet the medical needs of individual patients. Moreover, cardiac rehabilitation and other exercise programs help improve the health and well-being of people with heart problems. With an arsenal of cutting-edge diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive modalities, experienced health care professionals in the Division of Coronary Diseases provide high-quality services ranging from emergency to long-term care.
