Offering a Wide Range of Specialty Heart Failure Care
Deborah Specialty Physicians, a physician practice group affiliated with Deborah Heart and Lung Center, has announced the opening of its Lawrenceville office, conveniently located on Princeton Pike. The practice brings advanced heart failure care closer to home for Mercer County residents.
According to the American Heart Association more than 6 million Americans are living with heart failure, and approximately 10 percent have advanced heart failure. Heart failure occurs when the heart is no longer able to pump blood through the body.
For patients who have heart failure getting the right cardiac team in place — as early as possible — can make a huge difference in the disease’s progression. The new Deborah Specialty Physicians office in Lawrenceville brings that cardiac experience to Mercer County, and brings with it the backing of Deborah Heart and Lung Center’s highly sophisticated surgical services if needed.
Deborah Heart and Lung Center, a nationally-renowned cardiac hospital, is considered a regional center of excellence for heart failure. Its team of specialists are expert at managing the disease through its progressive stages from early heart failure, managed with medication and lifestyle changes, through more severe disease states that can require implanted devices like a cardiac defibrillator, or even a left ventricular assist device (LVAD,) which is a mechanical pump used in the most severe cases of heart failure.
“We are excited about this new practice location,” said Kulpreet Barn, MD, Director of the Advanced Heart Failure Program at Deborah. “Our integrated team of heart failure specialists, advanced practice nurses, and diagnostic capabilities is good news for the Mercer County area. Our team will be able to provide early diagnosis of heart failure, offer support and management of more complex stages of disease progression, and provide the resources if device implantation is needed for advanced stages of heart failure.”
Deborah Specialty Physicians-Lawrenceville is located at 3100 Princeton Pike, Building 1, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call 609-836-6616 or visit www.DeborahSpecialists.com.
