These cardiologists from Minneapolis Heart Institute® bring heart health care to the Twin Cities west metro.
Angina is chest pain caused by poor blood flow through the blood vessels of the heart muscle.
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.
Heart rhythm problems
Arrhythmia or dysrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat or rhythm. There are many kinds.
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.
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.
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.
The number one killer in the United States, cardiovascular disease affects the heart and blood vessels. Our experts can identify, treat and help you manage cardiac conditions.
Heart health programs
Cardiac Device Clinic: Pacemaker and ICD follow up
If a pacemaker or ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) helps regulate your heartbeat, we can make sure your cardiac device is working properly. Our experts will evaluate your cardiac device and adjust settings so that you benefit the most.
Minneapolis Heart Institute's Vascular & Endovascular Services offers a full range of treatments for both routine and rare vascular conditions.
Four out of five Minnesota women are at risk for heart disease. This program tailors cardiovascular care to fit the specific needs of women.
When you have a rhythm problem with your heart (usually when it beats too slowly or if both sides of your heart don't beat together), you may need a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a medical device that can help your heart beat regularly.
ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator)
If your heart is beating too fast or irregularly, your doctor may decide that you need a device that gives your heart an electrical shock to restore your heart to a regular rhythm. This device is called an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD).
This new tool uses a special type of CT scanner to get a three-dimensional view of your blood vessels. This allows doctors to see whether plaque has built up in the artery wall that may cause a future heart attack or symptoms.
An echocardiogram uses sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart.
An exercise stress test is a screening tool to test the effect of exercise on your heart. It provides an overall look at the health of your heart.
Stress echocardiography uses ultrasound imaging to determine how the heart muscles respond to stress. It is mainly used to diagnose and evaluate coronary artery disease.
A Holter monitor will record your heart rhythm during your everyday activities. For this test, you will wear a portable EKG machine. You will have a Holter monitor for 24 or 48 hours.
Peripheral arterial evaluation
This non-invasive test helps the physician determine if the arteries in the legs or arms are blocked or narrowed. When there is blockage or narrowing of the leg or arm arteries you may have pain, coldness, numbness or non-healing ulcers in the affected limb. The test uses ultrasound and blood pressure cuffs to record the blood pressure at different levels in the limb.
Peripheral vascular imaging
A noninvasive peripheral vascular exam measures blood pressure and blood flow using sound waves created by a device called a doppler. You will have a test done while you rest and while you exercise on a treadmill. This test helps tell if there are blockages in the leg arteries. This test takes about 30 minutes when looking at leg veins, and 45 minutes or longer when looking at the leg arteries.
Peripheral venous evaluation
This non-invasive test utilizes ultrasound imaging to evaluate blood flow and detect possible blockages in the veins of the legs or arms. It is most often used to make sure that no blood clots are present in the veins.
