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.

  • Arrhythmias
    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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