Cardiology

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for adults in our country. That's why Legacy Health provides a complete circle of cardiovascular care, with you at the center.

Our board-certified doctors include world-renowned experts in every area of cardiology. They work with a team of nurses and other medical specialists to prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease. With Legacy, you have a health care system that gives you the choice of selecting private practice cardiologists, as well as Legacy Health cardiologists.

What is a Cardiologist?

A cardiologist is a doctor that has been trained to find, treat and prevent heart and blood vessel diseases. Cardiologists are different from cardiac surgeons (both cardiothoracic and cardiovascular). They usually refer to a cardiac surgeon if heart surgery is needed. A cardiologist can be called the "general contractor" of your heart, with electricians (electrophysiology cardiologists) and plumbers (interventional cardiologists) as specialists in heart care.

Cardiovascular Disease

The heart has its own "electrical" and "plumbing" systems. The electrical system is about the heart's rhythmic beating and is controlled by heart cells that create an electrical pathway. The plumbing system is about the blood vessels and the blood flowing through them. Cardiovascular disease refers to heart and blood vessel conditions. These conditions include coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias), heart conditions present at birth (congenital heart disease), congestive heart failure and other heart conditions.  Heart disease can cause heart attacks, strokes and other complications.  Heart disease can often be treated if found early. You may prevent or improve heart disease if you exercise, eat a healthy diet, quit smoking, lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and maintain a healthy weight.
