Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of mortality within the United States, accounting for approximately one out of every four deaths. Despite significant improvements in survival with treatments like aspirin, cholesterol-lowering medications such as statins, and devices like stents or pacemakers, cardiovascular disease remains a significant health problem. Many cardiovascular conditions are genetically inherited, meaning that specific genes you were born with may lead to disease later in life.
Our multidisciplinary cardiovascular genetics team involves highly specialized cardiovascular physician specialists, certified and licensed genetic counselors and a cardiovascular geneticist. This team can improve your care and treatment options by offering expertise in diagnosing and managing your cardiovascular disease.
