Coronary Artery Disease
You may be wondering what place Coronary Artery Disease has in a vein care clinic, but varicose veins are not the only thing our doctors are able to treat. We also specialize in offering many screenings and treatments related to Coronary Artery Disease.
Coronary Artery Disease is the hardening of the arteries due to the buildup of plaque. This causes a heart attack when plaque buildup cuts off the blood flow to the heart muscle tissue itself. When the heart is not supplied with the life-giving oxygen that the blood brings, the cells can die, and if the heart fails, then the person can die.
Medical technology has come up with many screenings and tests to detect the signs of Coronary Artery Disease, and our doctors can schedule these tests for you in order to give you a good look into what shape your heart is in.
Tests we perform that relate to Coronary Artery Disease (see the full list of everything we do on our Treatments page):
