Expert Heart Care Near You
Whether you realize it or not, your heart does a lot of work, which is why you need to take care of it. Exercise and eating a well-balanced diet, as well as maintaining normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels, goes a long way with heart care and with keeping your heart ticking along.
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, things can go wrong with your heart. That’s when you want Banner Health’s leading cardiologists providing you with expert heart care. Our cardiology services have consistently been rated as some of the best heart care in the nation.
Why Should I Choose Banner Health?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 610,000 people – or 1 in 4 – die from heart disease each year in the United States. It is the leading cause of death for both men and women. At Banner Health, our cardiac program is designed to take this serious issue head on.
We have earned national recognition for success with heart procedures and use some of the most innovative technology whenever it can benefit the patient. This includes minimally invasive and robotic surgeries, which limits recovery time.
After surgery, our Progressive Care Unit makes your transition from cardiac intensive care to later recovery easier. After surgery, we support you with cardiac rehabilitation and all the education and support you need to recover.
What Are My Treatment Options?
Not all heart and vascular conditions require surgery. Lifestyle changes and medication can help. If surgery is the best treatment, we'll explain your options and recommend a treatment.
We offer traditional open-heart surgery along with many other specialized treatments. A few of them include:
- Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
- Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implant
- Limb salvage
- Maze procedure
- Sapien transcatheter heart valve replacement
- Transmyocardial vascularization (TMR)
From heart attack to heart failure and from vascular disease to valve replacement, our specialists treat each patient and each condition individually.
