About

When the arteries to the heart become blocked, the heart does not receive enough oxygen, and you suffer a heart attack. Cardiologists at the Cardiovascular Center are expert in determining both the cause of the heart attack and possible treatments. Since heart attacks can be caused by several different things, it is important to have a specialist evaluate your individual situation. Once you have been evaluated, our expert specialists can determine what will be the best treatment options.

Because the Cardiovascular Center is part of an academic medical center, it also offers cutting edge techniques and experienced specialists who are researching all aspects of heart disease and related conditions. This adds to the patient experience because you are receiving not just the best care, but the most informed care in health care services.

Conditions that can cause a heart attack:
