Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States-and the world. Every 40 seconds, one American dies from cardiovascular disease, which claims more lives than all forms of cancer combined.
Yet, most of us are only vaguely familiar with the amazing organ inside our chests that sends 2,000 gallons of blood throughout our bodies every single day. Dr. Aarush Manchanda has been in the trenches battling heart disease for 12 years. His philosophy of cardiology practice is rooted in his belief that patients aren't just a set of symptoms in a study-and caring for them involves more than following one-size-fits-all instructions.
Using his Artisan's Approach™, he's developed a new language, his Heart House analogy, for communicating with patients about heart health and empowering them to be involved in their own care.
