Jefferson University Hospitals

Diseases & 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse
    Mitral valve prolapse is a condition caused when the heart's valves do not properly close.

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

  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm
    Our vascular surgeons are leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of aneurysms, including thoracic aortic aneurysm.
