Cardiac Disease Management
Congestive heart failure (CHF) is an increasingly common condition, usually secondary to other illnesses that weaken or damage the heart. Fortunately, there are more treatment options than ever before for heart failure. Our cardiologists’ expertise can often provide your patients prolonged and improved quality of life. Our cardiac care team will collaborate with you to offer your patients comprehensive, coordinated care throughout diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.
Our physicians combine 80 years of experience with nuclear, electrophysiology, echocardiography and cardiac catheterization technology to diagnose heart failure.
Damage to heart function typically can’t be reversed, but treatment can significantly improve outcomes. When deciding treatment options, the most important factor is what caused the heart failure. Based on this, treatment may include lifestyle changes, medication, procedural interventions - such as angioplasty or valve repair - and medical devices. If open heart surgery is required, we have close relationships with leading regional cardiovascular surgeons.
At LMH Heart Center, we are committed to helping your patients manage their heart failure. We provide information on medications, nutrition, exercise and tips for following a treatment plan. Your patients will receive comprehensive treatment based on current clinical practice guidelines and the latest clinical trials.
