What is preventive cardiology?

Preventive cardiology, a subspecialty of cardiology, focuses on both helping you avoid heart conditions and detecting them early if they should develop. This is when cardiovascular conditions are often most treatable or even reversible without needing major medical care. 


Some common risk factors for cardiovascular diseases that you can address through preventive cardiology are:


  • Smoking
  • An unhealthy diet
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Obesity
  • A sedentary lifestyle


There are also uncontrollable factors like your genetics and age. 


Many cardiovascular conditions appear without any symptoms, and you may not be aware of them until you suffer a major medical event like a heart attack. Talk to your provider at Central Park West Primary Care and Cardiology Physicians about your own risk factors and whether you should consider preventive cardiology services. 

Which services does preventive cardiology include?


Preventive cardiology is highly personalized and can reduce your risk of many forms of heart disease. Your provider reviews your personal medical history and asks a variety of questions about your habits and diet. 


Some preventive services you can get at Central Park West Primary Care and Cardiology Physicians are:


  • Comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessment
  • Cholesterol management
  • Cardiac imaging tests
  • Nutrition services
  • Weight management services
  • A personalized cardiac rehabilitation program


Your provider builds an individualized prevention plan to help you stay healthy and avoid life-threatening events like heart attacks, strokes, and pulmonary embolism. They can also help you manage any conditions that have already been diagnosed, like congenital heart conditions or high blood pressure. 

What are the benefits of preventive cardiology?


Preventive cardiology can help you manage current cardiovascular health conditions while significantly lowering your risk for others. These services can also help you avoid complications from cardiovascular conditions. 


By engaging in preventive care with your heart specialist, you can mitigate your risk of preventable conditions like:


  • Coronary artery disease
