Heart disease. Diagnosis and Treatment
Coronary heart disease is the narrowing of the blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart. Regular flow of blood and oxygen are essential to a healthy heart. The narrowing of the blood vessels can lead to conditions such as
heart attacks, strokes and deep-vein thrombosis. Almost 1 million people die from it each year. It causes almost twice as many deaths as cancer.
In large part, more people are surviving heart disease because of the kind of new technology and medical treatments that are available at Providence. Keeping you healthy is at the heart of everything we do.
The first step in effectively treating heart disease is to accurately diagnose the problem. Our full array of non-invasive procedures offers maximum benefits with the least amount of risk.
