A Lifelong Partnership in Wellness
- Providing Heart-Felt Heart Care for Men
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. and men are at highest risk. Our skilled cardiologists use advanced technology, such as fast CT scanners and other diagnostic tools, to catch cardiac problems early — giving you the chance to take action before they become more serious.
At AdventHealth Heart of Florida, we believe your best defense is often a good offense. That’s why we proactively work with our male patients to help you understand your risk factors and suggest ways to lower it, including lifestyle changes to prevent or slow the progression of heart disease.
Should you need medical treatment, we offer a number of therapies to fight heart disease, including medication therapy, minimally invasive cardiac catheterization techniques and traditional surgical options.
- Protecting Your Prostate Health
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men, and early detection is key to the best possible treatment outcomes. That’s why AdventHealth Heart of Florida prostate specialists use prostate cancer screening and advanced diagnostic technology to find prostate cancer in the earliest stages.
Talk to your doctor about your family history and risk factors for prostate cancer. Together, we can decide what screenings are right for you.
While cancer is something we all hope to avoid, if it does happen to you or someone you love, we’re here to help. Since each patient is unique, our doctors tailor treatment to meet individual needs. One or more treatments may be needed to treat your cancer, and our experienced team of doctors and support personnel will guide you throughout the entire process. Our prostate cancer treatments include:
- Hormone therapy
- Robotic surgery
- Watchful waiting
- Supporting You Through Sports-Related Injury
Sports are a great way to stay fit physically and mentally — but we know things don’t always go as planned. When you get sidelined with a sports related injury, AdventHealth Heart of Florida is here to help with a full range of non-invasive treatments and top-notch rehabilitation services.
Our team of physical therapists, occupational therapists and other rehab specialists will work together to create a care plan to help your body heal and regain the strength and function you need to get back to the activities you love. Our sports medicine specialists will also teach you about your body’s limitations, so you know ways to minimize the likelihood of future injury.
- Delivering Compassionate Urologic Care
AdventHealth Heart of Florida urology care focuses on the urinary tract and system, which includes the bladder, kidneys and male reproductive organs. While many urological health issues can be difficult to talk about, they can have a major impact on your quality of life. Our compassionate team of urologists is here to listen – and help. We diagnose and treat a wide range of urologic conditions, including:
- Sexual function
- Prostate and urinary tract cancers
- Urinary incontinence
- Urinary stones
When Every Minute Counts
Heart attack symptoms vary widely among men, from acute chest pain to no chest pain at all. Learning to recognize heart attack symptoms in men, can potentially save a life. The symptoms can include:
- Cold sweat
- Chest discomfort (pain or pressure that lasts a few minutes or goes away and comes back)
- Nausea (with or without vomiting)
- Shortness of breath
- Upper body pain (back, neck, jaw or stomach)
If you or a loved one show signs or symptoms of a heart attack, call 9-1-1 immediately. Do NOT attempt to drive yourself to the hospital.
