Innovation in Cardiovascular Research

Whether in service of cardiovascular research, diagnostics or patient treatment, innovation in healthcare today is driven by technology. Its extraordinary impact is due to the development of tools that allow us to practice preventive care in a way that was considered impossible a decade ago. An integral piece of our work, technology continues to improve the quality of life of our patients.

Our Vision

Our vision is clear: give everyone access to an approach that will radically improve health conditions. We do this by emphasing the importance of identification and early treatment of the most severe cardiovascular diseases

Staff Focused

Staffed by an exceptional team of professional with years of experience we offer some of the most innovative revascularization techniques that provide significant improvement in blood flow. Our records of innovation and development deliver unmatched results in preventative care as well as in the treatment of existing pathologies.

Your Vascular System

Your vascular system is made up of vessels that carry your blood throughout your body. Arteries carry oxygen-rich blood away from your heart. Veins carry oxygen-poor blood back to your heart. Your blood leaves the left side of the heart and is pumped out to the rest of your body.

Main Artery

The main artery from your heart is called the aorta. As your blood travels throughout your body, it enters smaller and smaller blood vessels, reaching every cell, dropping off nutrients and picking up waste products and carbon dioxide.

Your blood then starts the trip back in your veins, entering larger and larger ones as it goes, passing through your kidneys and liver on the way to drop off waste products. The blood eventually arrives back at the right side of your heart to start the trip all over again.

As we age

As we age, our arteries tend to thicken, get stiffer, and narrow. This is called arteriosclerosis. A form of arteriosclerosis is atherosclerosis, which is the build-up of plaque and cholesterol in large and medium-sized arteries. A narrowing of the arteries from the build-up of plaque can lead to coronary heart disease, and can cause a heart attack when this occurs in the blood vessels leading to the heart.

The same situation in the arteries leading to the brain can cause strokes. Narrowing of the arteries in other places, such as your legs, can cause what is called Peripheral Arterial Disease, or PAD. PAD can lead to sores, pain with walking, or amputation. When the smaller arteries are affected it is called arteriolosclerosis.
