The Center for Advanced Cardiology is a department of the Center for Advanced Heart Failure at Memorial Hermann Heart and Vascular Institute-Texas Medical Center and is located on the campus of Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center. Affiliated Interventional Cardiologists are members of the faculty at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth and specialize in the prevention, detection and treatment of diseases of the heart. Besides heart failure, the center also treats: heart attacks, valve defects, stroke, atherosclerosis (narrowed arteries), arrhythmia (irregular heartbeats), cardiomyopathy (inflexible or enlarged hearts), congenital heart defects, virus-caused ailments and clogged vessels in the body beyond the heart and brain, known as peripheral vascular disease (PVD). These are factors that tax the heart and should be addressed to avoid hospitalizations and heart failure, which occurs when the heart contracts and expands inefficiently, compromising blood’s shuttling through the body. In addition, the Center for Advanced Cardiology in The Woodlands offers structural heart care and advanced interventional services.
The innovative center not only offers the latest in diagnoses and noninvasive treatments and surgery, but is also dedicated to excellence in research and education, including smoking cessation, and nutritional and fitness programs.
Dr. Sukhdeep Singh Basra, an assistant professor at UTPhysicians, is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases, Interventional Cardiology and Echocardiography. His clinical interests not only include preventing heart disease with lifestyle modifications, but also treating coronary artery disease, structural heart diseases as well as peripheral arterial disease with minimally invasive techniques.
