Heart Institute

You know the healthy choices that are good for your heart. The choices to help prevent heart disease. Yet sometimes they aren’t enough and heart disease can’t be prevented. That’s where our specialists come in. Our cardiologists and cardiac surgeons at the CHI St. Vincent Heart Institute offer you the very best in diagnostic tests and treatments. We give you the best chance possible for a healthy heart.

Diagnostic Tests for Heart Disease

Your cardiologist may conduct a variety of cardiac tests to gather important information about your heart and circulation. These are a couple of the most common diagnostic tests.

  • Exercise tolerance - involves walking or jogging on a treadmill and can detect heart disorders that could be missed while you are at rest.
  • Echocardiogram - takes sound wave pictures of your heart to find problems with your heart valves and measure the strength of your heart muscle

Treatments for Heart Disease

If you are diagnosed with a heart disease, our heart doctors will develop a treatment plan for you that may include medication, lifestyle changes or surgery. We will share that treatment plan with your primary care provider so that all the doctors you see will know what care you are getting.

  • We have doctors who specialize in treating Atrial Fibrillation (AFib). They are some of the first to offer the WATCHMAN device for patients with Atrial Fibrillation who cannot tolerate blood thinners and Warfarin therapy.
  • For our patients with aortic stenosis who are not good candidates for open heart surgery, we offer Transcatheter Valve Replacement (TAVR). This minimally-invasive procedure quickly gets patients back to the activities they enjoy. 
  • Specialists in our Advanced Heart Failure Clinic see patients with congestive heart failure. We aggressively treat heart failure focusing first on medications, then if necessary options for heart transplant including Left-ventricular assist devices.

Preventing Heart Disease

Our Well-Fed Me e-newsletter gives you recipes that are good for you, good for your family and good for your heart. Eating healthy is just one way to help prevent heart disease. Your doctor can suggest others.
