Cardiologists are doctors who identify, treat and help you manage conditions like angina, heart attack, heart rhythm problems, high blood pressure, peripheral artery disease (PAD) and stroke.

Angina

Angina is chest pain caused by poor blood flow through the blood vessels of the heart muscle.

Learn more about angina in our health encyclopedia or heart health manual.

Heart attack

Heart attack happens when an artery that feeds your heart muscle becomes blocked with plaque (fatty deposits) or by a clot. When the blood cannot flow to the heart, damage or death to the heart muscle may occur.

Learn more about heart attack in our heart health manual.

Heart rhythm problems

Arrhythmia or dysrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat or rhythm. There are many kinds.

Learn more about heart rhythm problems in our heart health manual.

High blood pressure

Blood pressure is the amount of pressure within the walls of your arteries. High blood pressure is increased pressure against artery walls.

Learn more about high blood pressure in our heart health manual.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD)

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) occurs when plaque clogs the arteries in your legs, reducing blood flow to your legs and feet.

Learn more about PAD in our heart health manual.

Stroke

A stroke results when blood and oxygen flow to the brain is stopped or interrupted. This happens because of a ruptured or blocked blood vessel.

Learn more in our stroke manual.

These cardiologists from Minneapolis Heart Institute® bring heart health care to the Twin Cities and surrounding communities.

R.T. Rybak's second chance

Today, R.T. Rybak is more focused than ever on his health.

In addition to prescribing several medicines, Wang helped Rybak integrate cardiac rehabilitation into his regular exercise routine.

When it comes to heart disease, family history matters
