The field of cardiology now encompasses much more than the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Cardiologists deal with cardiac issues, of course, but they also treat vascular problems such as aneurisms and blood-flow restrictions throughout the body, from the carotid artery to the lower extremities. Cardiologists may recommend angioplasties, stenting or other treatments.
Through its unique partnership with The Fogarty Institute for Innovation, El Camino Hospital combines world-class research with the latest technology innovations and treatments in an effort to help prevent heart attacks, strokes and other life-threatening conditions. Thomas Fogarty, founder of the Institute, is one of the top medical innovators of the last few generations in the cardiovascular field. Thanks to Dr. Fogarty’s leadership, the Institute makes it possible for the cardiologists at El Camino Hospital to offer the latest in cardiovascular care to its patients.
