Contemporary Treatments for Irregular Heartbeat
Free Health Lecture

palpitationsATRIAL FIBRILLATION INCREASES STROKE RISK 5 TIMES
Do you often feel your heart racing or flip-flopping in your chest? That abnormal heart beat could be the wake-up call for a serious heart rhythm problem called atrial fibrillation (A-Fib). If your heart isn’t beating properly, blood clots can form, travel to the brain and cause a stroke. Luckily, advances in treating A-Fib can significantly reduce this risk.

Come hear a board-certified electrophysiologist — a cardiologist who specializes in abnormal heart rhythms — describe the latest advances in diagnosing and treating A-Fib.

Speaker: Jignesh Shah, MD, with Boulder Heart
When: Tuesday, March 3, from 7 to 8 p.m.
Where: East Boulder Community Center, 5660 Sioux Dr., Boulder
Reservations required: bchlectures.org/heartbeat • 303-441-0580

LASER SURGERY CAN FREE YOU FROM WEARING GLASSES

Vision that is clouded by cataracts can put a damper on life. Fortunately, with laser cataract surgery, you can enjoy clear vision once again—and ditch your glasses after the procedure.

The new LenSx laser brings a new level of accuracy and precision to cataract surgery and, at the same time, can correct astigmatism. This new technology, combined with advanced lens implants, can leave you with near perfect vision.

Learn how this recent advance in cataract surgery can help those with nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia (age-related vision loss) or astigmatism stop relying on glasses or contact lenses.

Is That Pain in Your Leg Muscles Serious?
Free Health Lecture

ARTERY DISEASE RAISES RISK FOR HEART ATTACK, STROKE

PAD (1)It can strike while you’re walking or climbing stairs—painful cramping in your calf, thigh or buttock. You stop for a few moments, and the pain goes away. Those symptoms could indicate a serious condition called Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.). It develops when your leg arteries become clogged with fatty plaque. P.A.D. is a warning that arteries in your heart and brain might also be clogged, increasing your risk of a heart attack or stroke.

Come hear a board-certified interventional cardiologist describe the latest approaches for diagnosing and treating P.A.D.

Speaker: John R. McNeil, MD, of Boulder Heart
When: Thursday, March 19, from 7 to 8 p.m.
Where: Boulder Marriott, 2660 Canyon Blvd., Boulder
Reservations required: bchlectures.org/PAD • 303-441-0580
