NEW! Cardio-Oncology Clinic

Our cardiovascular and oncology departments have teamed up to start a Cardio-Oncology clinic. A dedicated Cardio-Oncology clinic will allow cancer patients to be screened and treated for specific cardiac diseases either associated with their cancer or with chemotherapy agents, such as hypertension, valvular heart disease, and peripheral vascular disease, among others. Also, by utilizing state-of-the-art 3D echo/volume analysis with strain technology we can detect cardiomyopathy or a weakening of the heart muscle, that results from chemotherapy agents before the disease progresses. By doing so patients will be treated for their cancer with significantly less concern for developing heart failure as an adverse reaction. Working together with your cancer doctor we can detect and treat these cardiovascular diseases before it’s too late.

If you or a loved one has cancer or has been treated for cancer in the past, you may be suffering from cardiovascular disease due to chemotherapy treatment.  Discuss with your oncologist if you would be a candidate for this program.
