Preventive Cardiology Services
In UW Health's Heart and Vascular Care Preventive Cardiology program, our comprehensive services include:

Our program can benefit patients at significant risk for vascular disease, patients who cannot tolerate or do not respond to standard therapy for their vascular risk factors and patients with genetic disorders of lipid metabolism. We focus primarily on cholesterol and lipid management but also address cardiovascular issues such as tobacco use, high blood pressure, diabetes, hypertension and other risk factors.
