ADVANCED HEART & VASCULAR CARE

Heart disease is the leading cause of mortality in the United States — responsible for an estimated 1 in 4 deaths in America each year. Part of the reason for that is because there are many people who, even today, are not aware of the state of their heart. If you have questions about your cardiovascular health, Jefferson Health cardiologists are here to help.

Jefferson Health cardiologists are at the forefront of advancing the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart and vascular disease. They treat a variety of cardiovascular disorders with a combination of personalized care, renowned expertise and advanced treatment.

Treatments

We provide

Jefferson Health cardiologists helped pioneer the use of coronary stents and drug-eluting stents in preventing heart attacks, and we are one of a select group of medical centers in the U.S. that can offer minimally invasive alternatives to open-heart bypass graft surgery. This means less discomfort, fewer medications and earlier discharges from the hospital.
