Diseases and Conditions

TO US, EVERY CONDITION IS A SERIOUS CONDITION.

Diseases and Conditions

Advanced Heart Failure

Our specialists provide personal treatment for patients with heart failure, a condition that prevents the heart from pumping enough blood for the body.

Arrhythmias and palpitation

Our medical staff is among the most experienced in the Philadelphia region in diagnosing and treating patients with heart rhythm disorders, such as arrhythmias.

Atherosclerosis

Advanced techniques are available at Jefferson to treat patients with hardening arteries, known as atherosclerosis disease.

Atrial Fibrillation

We have set the standard in the region for atrial fibrillation care, the most common form of arrhythmia, or abnormality of heart rhythm, through a track record of outstanding patient care, groundbreaking scientific research and the use of innovative technologies and techniques.

Atrial Septal Defect

If you or a loved one is diagnosed with an atrial septal defect, our cardiologists will guide you through diagnosis and treatment.

Bradycardia

If you or someone you care for has bradycardia, the heart may be beating fewer than 60 beats per minute which could lead to dizziness and fatigue.

Cardiomyopathy

Physicians provide patients with cardiomyopathy, when the heart muscle weakens, with an individualized treatment plan based on underlying causes, potential complications and your specific needs.

Carotid Artery Disease

Our physicians use the latest diagnostic technologies to pinpoint carotid artery disease and provide you with the appropriate care to prevent stroke.

Chest Pain

If you should experience a sudden onset of chest pain, you want to know right away if you are having a heart attack. For every minute a heart attack goes undiagnosed, further damage is done to your heart.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

If you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), normal breathing and daily activities can be difficult because air flow is being blocked in your lungs.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease occurs because over time fats, cholesterol and other substances build up in the walls of your arteries to form a type of plaque.

Heart Attack

For treating narrowed or blocked coronary arteries, we offer more minimally invasive alternatives to surgery than any other hospital in the Delaware Valley.

Heart Murmurs

Our cardiologists provide personal care and attention to diagnose any unusual sounds occurring around the heartbeat cycle, known as heart murmurs.

Mitral Valve Prolapse

Mitral valve prolapse is a condition caused when the heart’s valves do not properly close.

Pericarditis/Myocarditis

Our specialists provide state-of-the-art care and support for pericarditis and myocarditis, conditions often associated with each other.

Peripheral Vascular Disease

Our medical team has the specialized expertise to help you manage the symptoms of peripheral vascular disease and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and other complications.

Rheumatic Heart Disease

Our physicians can provide you with specialized, expert care to treat your rheumatic heart disease caused by rheumatic fever.

Sudden Cardiac Death

If you or someone you are with suddenly collapses, loses consciousness and stops breathing, it is critical to begin resuscitative efforts immediately in order to prevent sudden cardiac death.

Women’s Heart Health

The health needs of women are different from men. That’s why we have some of the most highly skilled and trained professionals in treating and managing heart disease in women.
