Heart Failure

It’s In Our Heart to Care for Yours

It’s scary to think your heart might slow down. But for the 5.7 million Americans over age 65 affected by congestive heart failure each year, that’s exactly what happens. The term “congestive heart failure” simply means the heart isn’t pumping as well as it should. A strong heart pumps blood full of oxygen and nutrients to the cells in the body. If your heart becomes weakened, it falls short of supplying the vital blood to your entire body, leaving you feeling tired and short of breath.

Identifying and treating the condition early can minimize the impact on your life and help you feel more like yourself again.

When to Make an Appointment

If you experience fatigue or shortness of breath when going about your usual daily activities, we recommend you be evaluated for possible heart failure. This is a chronic and progressive condition and oftentimes, there is no cure; but that doesn’t mean you can’t live a full, happy and satisfying life. Our healthcare professionals embrace the care of your heart with a combination of advanced medical, surgical and treatment techniques available. We use the latest technologies and tools at our disposal to create a personalized treatment plan just for you.

If you think you might benefit from speaking to a member of our heart care team, search our physician directory for a provider at the location most convenient to you.
