What We Treat
Heart disease can come in many forms. In general, it is a disorder of the blood vessels of the heart that can lead to a heart attack. People think heart disease can be “cured,” but in fact, heart disease is something that once diagnosed, will need to be continuously managed throughout the life of the patient.
Thankfully, Grady is expert at helping heart patients live full, satisfying lives by treating acute heart conditions and helping you make lifestyle changes that enable you to live a long life.
