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.
Now is the right time to start paying attention to your heart health. You can lower your risk for heart attack and stroke by knowing the risk factors that affect your heart.
