Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in men and women worldwide. It is also a silent killer, meaning that not many people realize they have it until a heart attack or stroke happens. Many people do not even know they have a heart problem until they experience a cardiac event. Your doctor can assess your likelihood of developing a heart problem during regular physicals, and if you have warning signs for heart disease, you may be referred to a cardiologist. What is cardiology? Cardiology is the branch of medicine focused on the heart—primarily the veins and arteries throughout the body, which transport blood from and back to the heart. You may want to consider seeing a cardiologist if you have family members with heart conditions, if you are a smoker or used to smoke regularly in the past, if you have high blood pressure or cholesterol, or if you have chest pains. Care you can trust Common heart conditions our board-certified cardiologists treat in Carson Valley include coronary artery disease, heart failure, blood clots, high blood pressure and atrial fibrillation.
