What is preventive cardiology?
Preventive cardiology focuses on early detection, prevention and rehabilitation of heart disease. It lowers the risk of heart attacks and strokes by helping individuals understand the risk factors that affect their heart.
Why preventive cardiology?
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Heart disease is responsible for about one in four deaths.
Once a patient’s risk has been established, various therapeutic options are available, including revascularization procedures, advanced lipid medications, clinical trials and novel therapeutics. Patients are often able to come off of certain outpatient medications, and some patients with significant high risk features, are able to participate in trials of new lipid therapeutics.
Dr. Kolski and the team at Orange County Heart Institute provide you the tools you need to live a heart healthy life. Our team’s integrative approach to patient care includes an evaluation of your heart disease risk factors. We use genetic testing, advanced heart scans, and cardiac biomarkers to determine a patient’s overall risk for developing heart disease.
Dr. Kolski and his team helps patients lead healthier, happier lives. Dr. Kolski is board eligible for the national lipid boards, and has significant experience working in a vascular biology lab, with an emphasis on lipids. He’s also published multiple papers on this subject.
Who we treat
We treat patients with a strong family history of heart disease and people who want to know their overall cardiovascular risk.
