You have heard it on the news: Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States not only for men but for women as well.
Multiple factors including genetics and lifestyle choices play a role in the development of heart disease and significantly impact the health of your heart. It does not take a mathematician to solve the equation: the more risk factors a person has, the greater the chance of potential detriments upon their cardiac wellness. Dr. Nilesh Bavishi is a Houston Cardiologist who has thousands of grateful patients. This is because he has a treatment methodology for cardiac wellness that is unique to each individual patient and their particular needs.
The main thing Dr. Bavishi tries to relay to his patients is the art of heart health and preventative cardiology. Patients that may already have a diagnosed cardiac disease can be conditioned to control heart risk factors before they worsen cardiac issues. Things that can be modified to control heart disease include: diet, stress factors, exercise and activity levels, and medications and supplements.
Dr. Bavishi has a state-of-the-art facility in which he provides many procedures and examinations in order to actually measure your cardiac wellness. Included in these tests and procedures performed by Dr. Bavishi are:
- Stress Echocardiogram – This is a stress test used to define the presence of coronary artery disease.
- Lipid Management – Cholesterol levels must be regularly screened and monitored with a variety of blood tests so that your Houston cardiologist can take action to reduce the risk of heart disease.
- Electrocardiogram – This test is key to cardiac wellness because it picks up abnormalities in EKG recordings and helps diagnose many heart conditions such as blockages, premature ventricular contractions (PVC's), myocardial ischemia, injuries such as heart attack, and many others.
- Echocardiogram – This cardiac wellness test provides a view of the heart's structure and possible abnormalities like enlarged heart symptoms along with a look at the heart's functions, muscles and valves.
Dr. Bavishi can also perform other tests that he deems necessary in order to accurately judge and evaluate your cardiac wellness. Those include: Carotid Ultrasound/Doppler, Peripheral Arterial Ultrasound/Doppler, Holter Monitoring, Event Recorders, Mobile Cardiac Telemetry and Pacemaker Checks. All of these tests can contribute positively to your cardiac wellness and Dr. Bavishi uses them to make sure you get the best care possible. You are in great hands with Dr. Bavishi.
