General Cardiology

When patients experience cardiac related symptoms or conditions, general cardiology is typically one of the first specialties consulted for diagnosis and treatment. Offering inpatient and outpatient services, our physicians can provide management of both acute and chronic cardiac conditions.

Using clinical assessment, screenings and diagnostic exams, the cardiologists identify the specific cardiovascular disease and work with the patient and their families to develop the best individual comprehensive treatment options.

    The general cardiologists at Genesis HealthCare System are available to help you protect your heart and blood vessels. We treat a variety of symptoms and conditions for patients including:

    • Chest pain
    • Arrhythmias
    • Heart attack
    • Cardiomyopathies
    • Heart failure
    • Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
    • Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD)

      Surgical services

      In addition to surgical consultations, below is a partial listing of procedures and testing services provided by the vascular surgery team at Genesis.

      Vascular surgery

      • Open and endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysm
      • Monitoring of aneurysms greater than 4-5 centimeters
      • Carotid endarterectomy
      • Transcarotid artery revascularization
        • TCAR is a less-invasive method for reducing the risk of stroke and complications while treating carotid artery disease in one or both neck arteries. During the procedure, a small incision is made in the neck. A tube is inserted into the carotid artery and connected to equipment to direct blood flow away from the brain temporarily. The blood is filtered before returning to a vein in the groin. In addition to fewer risks during the TCAR procedure, a smaller incision is used to reduce scarring and procedure time is less than half compared to carotid endarterectomy. Most patients return home the day after the procedure.
      • Limb salvage procedures
      • Lower extremity angioplasty
      • Upper extremity angioplasty
      • Lower extremity bypass surgery
      • Dialysis fistula creation and intervention

The electrophysiology team at Genesis utilize state of the art technology to offer a wide range of treatment options to those with heart rhythm disorders.

        General Cardiology

        When patients experience cardiac related symptoms or conditions, general cardiology is typically one of the first specialties consulted for diagnosis and treatment. Our general cardiologists utilize the screenings and diagnostic tests available at Genesis HealthCare system to help you protect your heart and blood vessels.

        Interventional Cardiology

        Our board-certified interventional cardiologists have years of experience and extensive training in performing both cardiac and peripheral interventional procedures, and our quality outcomes for interventional cardiology far exceed national averages.

        Structural Heart

        Our structural heart program evaluates, diagnoses and treats patients with heart conditions that affect the mechanics of the heart, meaning its valves, walls and chambers. Some of these issues may have existed at birth, while others are caused by aging, injury or illness. Genesis Heart & Vascular Institute physicians treat multiple types of structural heart disease, including aortic stenosis, heart valve disease and PFO closure, performing minimally-invasive and robotic-assisted procedures that eliminate the need to open the chest during surgery.

        Vascular Surgery

        Our board-certified vascular surgeons lead our experienced Genesis Vascular Surgery Team. Combining their 40 years of expertise and experience they can perform a variety of procedures, including minimally invasive options, to get you back to your best health.

        Clinics and specialty programs

        Our specialized clinics focus on the treatment of specific disorders including congestive heart failure and pacemakers to cardiac rehab, venous disease and anticoagulation medication monitoring. Our team of cardiologists and nurses collaborate to create a treatment plan specific to each patient.

        Anticoagulation Clinic

        If you’re on a blood-thinning medication, you know how important it is to monitor your health. The Genesis Anticoagulation Clinic can make it easier for you to do this. With your physician’s referral, the clinic is your one stop for convenience in monitoring your medications and your health so you can stay healthy and active.

        Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) Clinic

        Congestive heart failure, also known as CHF, is a condition in which the heart does not pump as well as it should. The CHF Clinic at Genesis HealthCare System is available to patients with CHF for education, monitoring and treatment of their chronic condition.

        Device Clinic

        The Device Clinic at Genesis HealthCare Systems works in partnership with cardiology and electrophysiology to monitor patients with cardiac rhythm devices, from pacemakers to ICDs. We have the capability and technology to provide both in-person and remote monitoring of those devices to ensure that they are working properly and to identify any issues that may arise, allowing for prompt intervention by the physicians.

        Vein Center

        Genesis has a state-of-the-art vein center where physician experts take a comprehensive approach to vein care. A sign of venous disease is varicose veins. These are veins that have become enlarged and twisted and often appear as bulging, blue blood vessels that are clearly visible through the skin.

        Cardiac Rehabilitation Program

        The heart and vascular rehabilitation program is a safe way to bounce back after a heart attack, open-heart surgery or balloon angioplasty, or to reduce heart disease risk factors. The program combines exercise, education and support to help you restore and maintain your physical, psychological and vocational well-being.
