Cancer Treatment and the Heart

Cardio-oncology is a field within cardiology that focuses on the detection, monitoring, and treatment of cardiovascular disease occurring as a side effect of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. We are pleased to have our newest team member, Dr. Allison Padegimas, as a specialist in this field.

Below is a video where she discusses cardio-oncology and some of the work she does to help patients who are or have undergone cancer treatment manage heart health. Dr. Padegimas sees patients in West Hartford, Cheshire, and Wallingford. Call (203) 265-9831.
