Dr. Frank A. Sirchia believes that a healthy lifestyle is the basis for healthy patients. His approach to nutrition and exercise is always tailored toward the individual patient, yet targets shared core elements within our bodies; most notably our cardiovascular system. Dr. Sirchia specializes in complete cardiovascular evaluation and treatment for various cardiovascular diseases from his family medical practice in Riverview, Florida.
Types of Cardiovascular Disease
A disease that involves the heart or blood vessels is classified as a Cardiovascular Disease (sometimes referred to as “CVD”). Some of the most common cardiovascular diseases include coronary artery diseases (CAD), such as angina and myocardial infarction (also known as a heart attack).
Other types of cardiovascular diseases include:
- Aortic Aneurysms
- Congenital Heart Disease
- Heart Arrhythmia
- Heart Failure
- Hypertensive Heart Disease
- Myocardial infarction
- Peripheral Artery Disease
- Rheumatic Heart Disease
- Valvular Heart Disease
- Venous Thrombosis
Health Issues Related to Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiovascular disease can manifest itself in a variety of ways. When CVD is present, other health issues may arise. These include:
- Heart Disease
- Coronary Heart Disease
- Atrial Fibrillation
- Congestive Heart Failure
Dr. Sirchia’s Approach to Cardiovascular Disease
Dr. Sirchia believes the key to eliminating cardiovascular disease is prevention. We aim to address risk factors preemptively through good nutrition, exercise, and minimizing tobacco or alcohol consumption. One key factor in the presence of CVS is family history, and we will take this into account as we form your treatment and prevention plan.
