Diseases & Conditions

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Broken Heart Syndrome
    Severe stress can cause an actual condition known as broken heart syndrome (BHS), or Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, which often has symptoms similar to a heart attack.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Endocarditis
    Endocarditis is an infection of the inner lining of your heart (endocardium) that typically occurs when bacteria or other germs spread through your bloodstream.

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

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