Cardiology is a subspecialty of internal medicine. A cardiologist differs from a cardiac surgeon. A cardiac surgeon operates on the heart by opening the chest.

A cardiologist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disorders. The cardiologist will do tests and procedures such as heart catheterizations, angioplasty, and pacemaker insertion.

Heart disease relates specifically to the heart, while cardiovascular disease affects the heart, the blood vessels, or both.

What does a cardiologist treat? 

A cardiologist may be referred to a patient if they show symptoms of a heart problem.

Among the symptoms of a cardiac issue are:

high blood pressure
chest pains
changes in heart rate or rhythm
high blood pressure

A cardiologist can do tests to determine whether you have a heart murmur or an irregular heart rhythm.

Patients who have suffered a heart attack, heart failure, or other heart disorders are frequently treated. They assist in the decision-making process for cardiac surgery, heart catheterization, angioplasty, and stenting.

Also, the diseases cardiologist can treat are:

Atherosclerosis, atherosclerosis, atrial fibrillation, arrhythmias, congenital heart disease, coronary heart disease, congestive heart disease, high blood cholesterol and triglycerides, hypertension, pericarditis, ventricular tachycardia, high blood pressure, or hypertension.

Even if there are no symptoms, a person should consult a cardiologist if they have a family history of heart disease or high cholesterol, are or have been a smoker, have diabetes, or are starting a new fitness program.
