Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., so the goal of the Cardiac Prevention Center at the LifeBridge Health Cardiovascular Institute is to offer preventive care that reduces the cases of heart disease and improves the health of the surrounding community. At the Center, advanced diagnostic tools are implemented to identify the presence of early vascular disease, and patients with vascular disease are treated with a personalized approach that is guided by the physicians at the Sinai Center for Thrombosis Research.
The Cardiac Prevention Center also offers preventive care measures like health screenings and risk factor assessments. Lipid blood tests are provided to detect high and low High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) in the blood. Anti-platelet therapy is also provided to detect the development of acute coronary syndromes.
