Although heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States—accounting for one in four deaths every year—you can do a lot to prevent or reduce your risk of heart-related problems. The nationally recognized cardiac programs at Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, can help.
Heart specialists here offer advanced and effective diagnostic services to pinpoint your heart condition, and a variety of treatment options tailored to your specific needs.
Cardiologists help you manage or lower conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol through medication management, lifestyle changes and education and early intervention programs.
We believe that knowledge is the greatest weapon, which is why we offer a variety of education programs to help people who are coping with heart disease. The more you know about heart disease, the more you can contribute to favorable outcomes of treatment.
Our Heart Health Program includes exercise programs, cardiac rehabilitation programs, nutritional classes and more to help you recover from cardiac conditions and prevent future cardiac problems.
As a leader in the advocacy for awareness and advancement of women’s cardiovascular care, we have teamed up with the Sacramento chapter of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Movement. As a local sponsor of this initiative, we have taken this movement to heart, literally. Actively working on this initiative since 2006, we have provided health screenings to more than 6,000 people and educated thousands more.
