About Coronary Artery Disease

Main Page Content

​​​​Coronary Artery Disease happens when the coronary arteries become narrowed by a build-up of fatty layers (also known as plague) in the artery walls. This process is called atherosclerosis resulting in less blood flow reaching the heart muscle which causes pain and can lead to heart damage.  

We are seeing an increasing trend in the number of people with CAD and at PMCC we are taking a multi-faceted approach to address this global epidemic; researchers are finding new ways to diagnosis heart disease, specialists are performing and developing new heart therapies, and we are leading a global approach to cardiac rehab by partnering with good life fitness to help prevent heart disease.  

At PMCC, our teams work together to improve the lives of thousands of patients living with CAD.
