Centers & Programs
Cardiovascular conditions are as unique as the patients who experience them. At Temple Heart & Vascular Institute, we take a personalized approach to treating cardiovascular problems. This includes providing patients with access to disease-specific programs that are tailored to their condition. Within each program, patients are cared for by a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses and other caregivers from across the Institute who diagnose and provide appropriate management for the patient’s specific problem.
Search Clinical Trials
As a participant in many prominent clinical trials, Temple Heart & Vascular Institute is able to offer its patients access to novel treatments that may not be available through other programs. This is particularly beneficial for those patients who have not responded to traditional therapies or who are not candidates for standard treatments due to their health or other precluding factors.
Today it’s easier than ever to seek out the very best medical care—no matter where it is offered.

Patients will undoubtedly have questions about their cardiovascular condition and treatment over the course of their care. While we always encourage patients to share their concerns with their doctors or nurses, we recognize that sometimes questions come to mind at unlikely times. To help provide patients with easy access to the information they need, when they need it, Temple Heart & Vascular Institute has developed a library of patient resources. Within this section, patients will find disease-specific guides and a list of support groups in which patients can participate. This section also provides documents and links to national organizations serving those with cardiovascular conditions.
