About Cardiology

About Cardiology

Cardiology is a medical specialty dealing with disorders of the heart. The field includes diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology.

Here are some of the problems that go along with cardiovascular disease:


It also called hardening of the arteries, arteriosclerosis means the arteries become thickened and are no longer as flexible.


It's a buildup of cholesterol and fat that makes the arteries narrower so less blood can flow through. Those buildups are called plaque.


People with angina feel a pain in the chest that means the heart isn't getting enough blood.

Heart attack:

When a blood clot or other blockage cuts blood flow to a part of the heart.


When part of the brain doesn't get enough blood due to a clot or a burst blood vessel.

Clinical Cardiology

About Cardiologists : Cardiologists treat people with diseases or conditions of the heart and people who want to learn the risk factors for heart disease. A primary care doctor or family practice doctor can work with a cardiology specialist to diagnose, treat, and manage heart conditions and help people make heart-healthy lifestyle choices. Patients who are at risk for heart disease or have a history of heart symptoms may see a clinical cardiologist regularly. People with ongoing heart conditions, pacemakers, or frequent heart trouble are likely to see a cardiologist with a subspecialty.
