What is heart disease?
Heart disease refers to any condition affecting your blood vessels or the structure of the heart. The most common form of heart disease is coronary artery disease, which involves a buildup of plaque in the walls of the arteries that transport blood to the heart, causing these arteries to become narrowed or blocked. Other forms of heart disease include aortic disease, congenital heart disease, valvular heart disease, and peripheral artery disease.

The care you receive will be personalized based on your symptoms, medical history, and circumstances, ensuring that you are receiving the most effective treatment possible and allowing us to help you achieve positive long-term care outcomes.
