The Center for Advanced Cardiology is a department of the Center for Advanced Heart Failure at Memorial Hermann Heart and Vascular Institute-Texas Medical Center and is located on the campus of Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center. Affiliated Interventional Cardiologists are members of the faculty at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth and specialize in the prevention, detection and treatment of diseases of the heart. Besides heart failure, the center also treats: heart attacks, valve defects, stroke, atherosclerosis (narrowed arteries), arrhythmia (irregular heartbeats), cardiomyopathy (inflexible or enlarged hearts), congenital heart defects, virus-caused ailments and clogged vessels in the body beyond the heart and brain, known as peripheral vascular disease (PVD). These are factors that tax the heart and should be addressed to avoid hospitalizations and heart failure, which occurs when the heart contracts and expands inefficiently, compromising blood’s shuttling through the body.
The innovative center not only offers the latest in diagnoses and noninvasive treatments and surgery, but is also dedicated to excellence in research and education, including smoking cessation, and nutritional and fitness programs.
