There is no other medical center more qualified to write a book on this subject. The Cleveland Clinic Heart Center has been selected as the best Heart Center in America, according to U.S. News & World Report's annual survey for the past 11 years. Our doctors are leaders in cardiology, cardiac surgery, cardiothoracic anesthesia, and research into the heart and its diseases. No heart program has more experience, more knowledge and better access to technology. As medical pioneers, The Clinic developed cardiac angiography and the coronary artery bypass. Told through case histories, and fully illustrated, this guide --written by heart specialists who understand what the patients are going through -- addresses the myths associated with heart disease.
