Preventive cardiology is a medical discipline that revolves around maintaining cardiovascular health and averting the onset or recurrence of disease. This type of care is recommended for patients with a personal or family history of heart disease, very high cholesterol levels, severe hypertension, or metabolic syndrome. The goal of preventive cardiology is to lower the patient’s risk of developing or worsening a cardiac condition. This mission is accomplished with a combination of education about lifestyle changes and medical management and monitoring. After an examination, testing, and assessment, each patient is provided with a personalized treatment plan designed to prevent or rehabilitate cardiac problems.
