Comprehensive Cardiovascular Care in Thomasville
Heart and vascular diseases can develop over time and don’t always have symptoms. Our board-certified cardiologists are dedicated to helping patients identify factors, such as family history, high blood pressure, and unhealthy cholesterol levels, that put them at risk. Our cardiologists also help patients make healthy lifestyle changes that can prevent problems in the first place.
For patients who develop cardiovascular disease, our physicians and nurses create individualized treatment plans that address each patient’s unique needs. They use advanced diagnostic tools and sophisticated surgical and nonsurgical treatments to manage heart and vascular disease with the goal of preventing devastating consequences, such as heart attack and stroke.
Advanced Vascular Care
Heart problems are not always limited to the heart. Vascular disease can affect veins and arteries that carry oxygen-rich blood throughout the body. When these blood vessels get stiff, narrow or blocked, problems can develop.
Our vascular specialists have experience with procedures that help veins and arteries function properly, and they can help manage conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease, that can increase vascular disease risk. The goal is to prevent life-threatening vascular emergencies, such as stroke, aneurysm and heart attack.
Cardiac Rehabilitation: Helping Patients Through Recovery
Cardiac rehab can be crucial to heart attack recovery and management of long-term heart conditions, such as heart failure, a condition in which the heart does not pump blood efficiently. Our cardiac rehabilitation program gives patients the tools and education they need to:
Eat a healthier diet
Exercise regularly and safely
Manage stress effectively
Each session is supervised by therapists and dietitians with specialized training in cardiovascular health. They help patients set goals and create a plan to achieve those goals while offering encouragement and support along the way.
Cardiac rehabilitation requires a physician referral. If you are interested, ask your primary care provider or cardiologist if you are eligible.
