It All Starts with Heart
With a theme of “It all Starts with Heart,” readers are introduced not only to NorthBay’s dynamic group of cardiologists, interventional radiologists, cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons, and an electrophysiologist — but to the support personnel and life-saving procedures they perform at NorthBay Health every day. Some of these procedures are only available here in Solano County because of the depth of the team’s training and NorthBay Health’s investment in cutting-edge technology and equipment.
That means patients suffering from an array of heart and vascular conditions can be treated right here, close to home, according to Cyrus Mancherje, M.D., who was instrumental in helping establish NorthBay’s cardiology program back in the 1990s.
In the issue, readers are introduced to “Coronary Carl,” a hypothetical patient whose journey follows the path of a patient suffering a major heart attack and receiving treatment at NorthBay Health Medical Center. Real-life patients also share their stories and physicians share their passion for their specialties within the 24-page issue.
“It’s very unusual for a hospital our size to have the level of cardiovascular services that we offer,” noted Milind Dhond, M.D., medical director of NorthBay’s Heart & Vascular program. “When it comes to heart attacks, time is muscle and if a patient has to travel even 10 to 20 minutes further away for medical help, they may not make it.”
