CardioVascular Associates P.C. is one of the largest cardiology practices in the Southeast providing heart and vascular care to over 46,000 patients a year. Over the past 64 years, CVA has gained extensive experience in comprehensive programs offering our patients the full spectrum of prevention, noninvasive and invasive diagnostic modalities, and endovascular procedures. This broad approach serves to improve our patients' quality of life while providing access to new drugs and leading edge technology.
Our 28 cardiologists are at the forefront of new treatment options, using the latest technology to combat vascular disease and researching the treatments of the future. Angioplasty and stents are frequently used to re-open blocked vessels in the heart. However, the same process that causes heart disease can cause poor circulation to other parts of the body, such as the legs, arms and kidneys. Our physicians therefore treat the entire vascular system, even the carotid vessels that supply the brain. CVA also offers non-surgical treatment for conditions that normally require major surgery, such as abdominal aortic aneurysms and heart defects where there is an opening between the two chambers of the heart.
Of course, the best way to reduce the impact of heart disease is to prevent it from advancing. That's why we emphasize education and prevention, with a strong belief in the old adage, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." But in the end, it's our people, the physicians and staff, who make the difference.
In addition to our main campus location, we have several outreach locations in Clanton, Crestline Park, The Narrows, North Jefferson, Pell City, Shelby, Sylacauga and Talladega.
