Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Heart Disease in Women
Stanford is committed to improving the cardiovascular health of
women. Our team offers evidence-based, gender-specific, personalized,
and comprehensive care including primary, secondary, and tertiary
prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
We will start with a thorough evaluation of your risk for
cardiovascular disease by performing a complete medical history and
cardiac exam. This will become the basis of your unique prevention and
treatment plan. Additional tests, such as labs or imaging studies, may
be needed to completely understand your risk.
Women with concerning symptoms for cardiovascular disease may
require further diagnostic testing, ranging from non-invasive stress
testing to a cardiac catheterization. We specialize in the diagnosis
of coronary vascular function abnormalities, including endothelial
dysfunction and microvascular disease.
Whether or not you are diagnosed with cardiovascular disease,
managing your cardiovascular risk factors is of utmost importance to
prevent progression of your disease or future cardiovascular events.
We will help guide you in making healthy lifestyle changes and
becoming an active participant in your own cardiovascular health.
