What Is Coronary Artery Disease?
Coronary artery disease develops when the arteries that supply blood, oxygen, and nutrients to your heart become narrowed or blocked by the buildup or rupture of plaque or cholesterol. Over time, the disruption of blood flow may cause chest pain, also known as angina, shortness of breath, and general fatigue. As it progresses, coronary artery disease may lead to a heart attack, stroke, and even sudden death.
Our Goal for Your Care
We aim to identify coronary artery disease at the earliest-possible stage and address risk factors to prevent complications. We recommend prevention and treatment strategies to manage your coronary artery disease. For more advanced disease, we perform heart bypass surgery using minimally invasive and/or open surgical techniques. We routinely treat people who have multiple and complex blocked arteries. Our involvement in clinical trials means you may be able to access advanced therapies for coronary artery disease before they become widely available.
