Identifying & Caring for Heart Failure

You have an experienced team by your side to treat your heart failure and provide options and advice on how to prevent its worsening. Sometimes medication and lifestyle changes alone will help, but if you need other treatments or surgery, you can rely on the heart team at Banner Health. We are on the forefront of implementing the latest and most effective options so that you are assured of the best outcome for you. And, we provide ongoing care through cardiac rehabilitation as well as classes and support groups.

If medication and lifestyle changes are not improving your heart failure symptoms, it's good to know what other treatment options are available. Banner Health can help treat you at all levels. We have a wealth of experience across the full spectrum of heart failure options from state-of-the-art diagnostics to heart transplant.

Among the many treatments offered are:

  • Electrophysiology procedures to help your heart beat more efficiently
  • Stent placement - special tubes that keep your arteries open so that your heart gets the blood and oxygen it needs
  • Heart surgery to repair parts of your heart such as valves
  • Implantable devices to help regulate your heartbeat
  • Bypass surgery to alleviate stress on your heart
  • Valve repair and replacement
  • Heart transplant, left ventricular assist device (LVAD) and total artificial heart

Your doctor may choose one or a combination of treatments to get the best results tailored to your needs. At Banner Health, you have a wide range of treatments available and, with our focus on research, some of the most advanced options for your care.

You've come to the right place for heart care. Our heart health services are part of the full spectrum of care we provide so that no matter what you or your family need, you've got it close by. This means expert, convenient care where and when you need it. From top-of-their-field cardiologists, to a fully certified imaging team and expert cardiac surgeons, you will find it all at Banner Health.

We are with you to help you all along the way - from diagnosis, treatments and procedures to rehabilitation and getting you back home. Each team member will discuss the best plan of action for you or your loved one's particular diagnosis. Your heart care team may include:

  • Cardiologist
  • Cardiac Surgeon
  • Imaging Specialists
  • Interventional Radiologist
  • Nurse Navigator

And because we accept most insurances, that's one less thing you need to worry about.
