Coronary Artery Disease

Caused by blocked or narrowed heart blood vessels, coronary artery disease can damage the heart and result in heart attack. This cardiac condition is the leading cause of death among U.S. women and men.

Our cardiac experts excel in the latest heart treatments to fix blocked arteries, including coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery and angioplasty.

Symptoms of Coronary Artery Disease

You may feel tired, have chest pain or be breathless – signs of atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. This build-up of fatty plaque deposits inside artery walls can reduce or block oxygen and blood flow to the heart.
