What Can Our Cypress Cardiologists Do For You?
For those not in the know, cardiology is a branch of medicine that primarily diagnoses and treats heart disease, as well as abnormalities in other parts of the circulatory system such as blood vessels. If left untreated, heart disease and cardiovascular disease can lead to a whole host of medical problems, including high blood pressure, arrhythmia, and even stroke. With that in mind, we recommend that all patients with family or genetic risk factors for heart disease make regular visits to a cardiologist in their area.
If you belong to this category and reside in the Cypress area, Houston Heart Center can fit your needs. Our Cypress cardiology office provides a reliable, affordable option for patients like you with heart and cardiovascular concerns. Our skilled cardiologists are experienced in a wide variety of treatments and procedures, thereby making them amply qualified to assist you. Your cardiologist will be there as you embark on the road to good heart health and will be there every step of the way to help you overcome whatever obstacles you may encounter on your journey.
Our Cardiology Cypress Services
Before we begin that journey, let us prepare you with basic information about heart disease. The term heart disease is used to refer to a variety of heart conditions that each have different symptoms attached to them. With that said, heart disease is typically distinguished by the following symptoms: chest pain or discomfort; shortness of breath; pain, numbness or other unusual sensations in the extremities (arms and legs); and pain in the neck, jaw, or upper areas of the body. Symptoms of heart disease can manifest themselves differently in people depending on such factors as age, sex and family history. Therefore, you should not hesitate to contact a Cypress cardiologist at the first sign of possible health trouble.
Among the possible types of heart disease one might experience:
- atherosclerotic disease – symptoms of heart disease in your blood vessels may include chest pain, shortness of breath and extreme fatigue
- heart arrhythmias – symptoms of heart disease caused by an irregular heartbeat include slow or fast beating, chest fluttering and lightheadedness
- dilated cardiomyopathy – symptoms of a weakened heart muscle include breathlessness, fatigue and lower leg swelling
- valvular heart disease – symptoms of a closed or leaking heart valve include fatigue, shortness of breath and an irregular heartbeat
There are other forms of heart disease that are the result of congenital defects present since birth, including ones that are not diagnosed until later on in life. Regardless of what kind of heart disease you may have, you should know that it can be treated or even prevented with the right combination of prescriptions and lifestyle choices that include diet and exercise. Additionally, our state-of-the-art technology includes a cardiac PET scanner that is a reliable, non-invasive means of diagnosing coronary heart disease.
In short, Houston Heart Center is here to serve the heart health needs of our patients in Cypress and throughout the greater Houston area. We hope you will take the first step toward greater heart and cardiovascular care by calling us at 281-351-4911 today.
