Cardiology Care Specialists
Sansum Clinic's cardiologists perform the most advanced heart disease diagnostic tests available to catch heart disease in its earliest—and most treatable—stage. Our specialties include:
- Cardiac electrophysiology—evaluates problems with the heart’s electric system to pinpoint the cause of an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) and the best course of treatment
- Echocardiography—we offer the full array of echocardiogram tests in Santa Barbara region’s first and only lab accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL)
- Nuclear cardiology—uses low-radiation, high-resolution digital technology to safely detect all types of heart disease
If your condition requires intervention, our team specializes in interventional cardiology, a minimally invasive, catheter-based alternative to open-heart surgery that offers less pain and scarring, and often allows patients to return home the same day as the procedure.
