Preventive Cardiology plays a crucial role in the early detection and prevention of heart disease and related cardiovascular conditions. It is an essential tool to help minimize potential risks to your cardiac health.
The fundamental principle of Preventive Cardiology is early intervention and lifestyle adjustments to prevent the development of heart issues.
Our board-certified cardiologist, Dr. Sanul Corrielus, uses an integrated approach to patient care centered around Preventive Cardiology. This ensures every patient receives the highest quality care and personalized guidance on optimizing heart health.
Preventive Cardiology is a proactive approach to cardiology that focuses on early risk identification and effective management of disease. At Corrielus Cardiology, we understand that your heart's well-being is vital to your overall health and longevity.
We follow a holistic approach to Preventive Cardiology that helps prevent heart or blood vessel concerns. We also provide guidance and support if you have already experienced heart-related events or conditions.
Our two primary areas of focus:
- Primary prevention focuses on preventing heart or blood vessel problems before they occur, such as heart attacks, strokes, or the need for surgical interventions
- Secondary prevention for patients who have already experienced cardiac events aims to halt the progression of heart disease and prevent further complications
The first step to prevent cardiac events is to learn about your risks. During your initial appointment, we conduct a thorough risk assessment by considering the following.
- Your medical history and cardiovascular background
- Lifestyle habits, including diet, exercise, and smoking
- Screening for anxiety and depression
- Heart-focused physical examination
- Blood tests to evaluate cholesterol, blood sugar, etc.
Once your risks are identified, our team will discuss various treatment options with you. We help you manage risks associated with high cholesterol, blood sugar, high blood pressure, obesity, kidney disease, and more.
Finally, we consider lifestyle changes that can play a significant role in preventing cardiac events. We work with you to create daily routines that reduce your heart disease risks through dietary habits, physical activity levels, smoking cessation, and limiting alcohol consumption.
At Corrielus Cardiology, we believe in the importance of early diagnosis and personalized care to protect your heart health. Our Preventive Cardiology program is entirely personalized, reflecting your individual background, needs, and risks.
Our integrated approach to cardiovascular health prioritizes your overall well-being and quality of life.
