  What is Preventive Cardiology?

Preventive Cardiology is a specialty of medicine focused on preventing and managing cardiovascular disease states by controlling risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. In depth advanced lipid testing, prompt identification of underlying coronary artery disease, and aggressive prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis help achieve this goal.  By using noninvasive tests to detect evidence of early damage to organs such as the heart, kidneys, and arteries, preventive cardiology also aims to keep this “end organ damage” from progressing.  As personalized health care and genomic medicine become more a mainstay of how we treat patients, preventive cardiology is becoming an even more important field to reduce illness and prolong healthy and active living.  At Preventive Cardiology & Internal Medicine Associates (PCAIMA) we keep people from having strokes, heart attacks, and congestive heart failure, and we aim to reduce the need for hospitalizations or procedures due to poorly recognized or late recognition of advancing vascular disease.  Finally, because cardiovascular disease presents differently in women versus men our multi-specialty practice of internists and family medicine providers especially focus on the education and management of women.
