Treatments and Procedures
Treating Cardiovascular Diseases in Wisconsin and Northern Illinois
Cardiovascular treatments and procedures vary from person to person, depending on the type and severity of your condition, your age and health history.
To treat some types of cardiovascular disease in their early stages, doctors often recommend you follow the same lifestyle guidelines for cardiovascular disease prevention. That is, achieve a healthy shape and weight, eat a healthy diet, get sufficient exercise and quit smoking.
When lifestyle changes alone cannot accomplish the desired results, your doctor may also prescribe medications. Common medications include ACE-inhibitors, beta-blockers, blood thinners, diuretics, statins and anti-arrhythmias.
Generally, more complicated cardiovascular conditions require more technically advanced treatments and procedures. Aurora offers interventional and non-interventional procedures, implantable devices, cardiovascular surgery and other procedures to treat complex cardiovascular disorders.
