Sports Cardiology Clinic

A heart condition doesn't have to end your passion. At The Heart Center of NGMC, we're dedicated to working with athletes, from professional athletes to weekend warriors. Together, we can help you continue safely playing your sport.

About the program

Doctors in sports cardiology require special expertise and understanding of the physical demands of competitive sports and the psychology of athletes. The Sports Cardiology Clinic will evaluate adult athletes involved in any level of sports, as well as adolescents age 15 and older. The cardiologist focuses on identifying potentially serious cardiovascular conditions that, if left untreated, could cause potential harm.
