The Women's Cardiology Program

The Women's Cardiology Program of Lown Cardiovascular Group was conceptualized in an effort to address the cardiac issues that pertain specifically to our female patients and women in the community. The goal of this program is to empower women to take charge of their cardiac health. We strive to provide a comfortable environment to discuss symptoms and work with you in a collaborative, team-based approach to create a customized treatment plan that fits your life.

Why Women's Cardiac Health Matters

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in American women - more than all cancers combined. Despite this, women with cardiac illness often disregard symptoms and delay seeking treatment compared to men. The symptoms of cardiac illness experienced by women are often different than those of men. Women additionally can develop unique cardiac conditions related to pregnancy, menopause, and hormonal fluctuations.  Equally importantly, daily life stressors, such as taking on multiple roles and responsibilities, can contribute to the development of cardiac symptoms and illnesses.

The Women's Cardiology Program is designed with all of these elements in mind. We have created a comprehensive approach to women's cardiac care and health, by incorporating nutritional counseling, fitness assessments, and disease-specific treatment in a comfortable and non-hurried atmosphere. This comprehensive approach in the clinical setting is a unique experience designed to treat all aspects of your life with utmost care...because your cardiac health matters to us.

We believe that when we care for the hearts of women, we strengthen the foundation of society.
