Cardiology services in southeast Michigan

We provide the following cardiology services:

  • Arrhythmia: Also called dysrhythmia, this condition is a result of an irregular heartbeat and/or heart rate and can cause the heart to pump less effectively. It can occur with a normal or slower heart rate, as well as with rapid heart rates. This condition affects more than 850,000 people who are hospitalized each year for arrhythmia. Symptoms can resemble other conditions. Consult a WSUPG cardiologist for diagnosis.
  • Echocardiogram: Graphically outlines the movement of the heart to track high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) and provides pictures of the heart’s valves and chambers. A sonographer then evaluates the pumping action of the heart. There are several heart diseases that may be detected by echocardiography, including atherosclerosis (coronary artery disease), aneurysm, cardiomyopathy, congenital heart disease (ventricular septal defect/VSD, transposition of the great vessels, tricuspid atresia), heart failure, left ventricular hypertrophy, pericarditis and valvular heart disease.
  • Adult Congenital Heart Disease: Is found in more adults than children due to the advances made in diagnostic procedures and treatment interventions. Our cardiologists are equipped to provide information about specific congenital heart conditions, expectations for long-term outcomes and potential complications and risks.
