All Conditions We Treat

Aortic dissection is a rare and uncommon emergency situation where the aorta, the major blood vessel that branches off from the heart and carries blood to the body, tears. Sudden, severe pain in the back and chest, unconsciousness, and difficulty breathing and speaking are all symptoms, and immediate emergency treatment is required.

Aortic valve disease is when the valve between the aorta (main artery to the body) and the left ventricle (pumping chamber in the heart) doesn’t work properly. Sometimes, the valve doesn’t close all the way, causing blood to flow backward into the heart (regurgitation), or the valve is narrow and doesn’t allow enough blood to leave the heart and flow to the body (stenosis). The disease is either present at birth or develops over time.

Arrhythmia occurs when the heart does not beat normally – too fast, too slow, or irregular. There are different types of arrhythmia, which is a common and treatable condition. Symptoms include heart palpitations (a pause) or a fluttering feeling, but more serious symptoms cause lightheadedness, chest pain and shortness of breath.

Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM)

An arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a jumble of abnormal blood vessels that connect arteries and veins. Most often found in the brain or spine, an AVM can develop in any part of the body. An AVM can hemorrage (bleed), causing stroke or brain damage (brain AVM), and permanent spinal cord injury (spinal AVM). The condition is usually present at birth and not normally hereditary (passed down in a family). 

The following departments treat patients with arteriovenous malformation (AVM):

Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints, causing pain and stiffness. There are two main types of arthritis: osteoarthritis, which causes the cartilage (cushioning) in the joints to break down, and rheumatoid, an autoimmune disorder that targets a joints lining.
