Preventive Cardiology

Description of Services

Preventive Cardiology aims to identify and medically manage cholesterol and blood pressure problems early in life, with the goal of preventing heart attack or stroke later in life. It evaluates and treats children who have been diagnosed with or are at risk for conditions including hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia or hypertension.

Comprehensive evaluation and recommendations are made by an expert team, including a clinical dietitian.
