Cardiology refers to the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, which are the number one cause of mortality and morbidity in advanced societies.
Cardiology professionals of Gruppo San Donato aim at carrying out early diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, intervening before the most serious consequences (such as myocardial infarction, heart failure and sudden death) may occur.
Cardiology departments are divided into teams that collaborate with each other and with other departments to provide patients with most suitable and effective treatment performed according to the highest standards of care. For cases of high complexity which require a multi-specialist evaluation close collaboration is active with various teams.
