Complex lipid disorders
The Center for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention focuses on helping you lower your risk for heart disease or slowing its progression by controlling your cholesterol. We specialize in diagnosing and treating complex lipid and cholesterol disorders, many of which may be inherited. These include conditions such as familial hypercholesterolemia, familial hypertriglyceridemia and others.
Our clinic is headed up by leaders in the fields of lipidology and preventive cardiology. We provide genetic testing, recommend medications and other clinical evidence-based practices and work with you on lifestyle changes that will let you take control of your cardiovascular health.
South Asian cardiovascular health
People of South Asian descent have a higher risk of heart disease than many other racial and ethnic groups. Cardiovascular disease often shows up earlier—before the age of 50—even though many of those of South Asian ancestry do not have the conventional risk factors for, and it can be more aggressive than in other groups.
At the Center for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention, we specialize in assessing the risk of and treating patients of South Asian descent. We use advanced risk-assessment tools and lifestyle counseling to tailor your preventive cardiovascular care to your individual needs and accommodate your cultural and ethnic preferences.
