Interventional Cardiology: A medical sub-specialty of cardiology, interventional cardiology focuses on using catheters to diagnose and treat heart disease:

Acute Coronary Syndromes                       Heart Attack
Angina (Chest Pain)   Heart Valve Disease
Aortic Stenosis  Myocardial Infarction (heart attack) 
Atherosclerosis  Non-ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (NSTEMI) 
Atrial Septal Defect  Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) 
Congenital Heart Disease  ST Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI 
Coronary Artery Disease  Unstable Angina 

Electrophysiology (EP): A medical sub-specialty of cardiology, electrophysiology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting and affected by the heart’s electrical system. 

Arrhythmia  Irregular Heartbeat 
Atrial Fibrillation  Palpitations 
Atrial Flutter  Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation 
Bradycardia (slow heart rate                      Syncope 
Cardiac Arrest  Tachycardia (fast heart beat) 
Heart Palpitation  Ventricular Tachycardia 
Heart Rhythm Disorder  Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome 

Cardiac Surgery:  Cardiac surgeons have completed specialty training in cardiology and surgery, with additional training focused on surgical treatment of heart disease. Through our collaboration with our network partner Danbury Hospital with certain surgeries performed at Danbury, we treat conditions including:

Atrial Septal Defect  Mitral Valve Stenosis
Bicuspid Aortic Valve Disease  Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO)
Congenital Heart Disease  Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm 
Coronary Artery Disease  Tricuspid Valve Disease 
Endocarditis  Ventricular Septal Defect

Structural Heart:
Atrial Septal Defect; Congenital Heart Disease; Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO)

Vascular: Vascular surgeons have completed specialty training in vascular (care of the veins and arteries) medicine and surgery:

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)         Peripheral Artery Disease 
Atherosclerosis  Renal Artery Disease 
Carotid Artery Disease  Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm 
Chronic, Non-healing Wounds  Varicose Veins 
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT  Venous Insufficiency 
Mesenteric Artery Disease  Venous Thrombosis 
Peripheral Aneurysm   

Heart Attack
