Vassar Brothers Medical Center hosts heart failure management seminar

Posted: 11/30/2015

Vassar Brothers Medical Center will host a seminar on Dec. 8 about a new, FDA-approved device to help manage heart failure.

Dr. James Lyons of The Heart Center, a division of Hudson Valley Cardiovascular Practice, P.C., will discuss the CardioMEMS HF device, which is implanted during a minimally invasive procedure. The device gives doctors data to help manage heart failure care.

“We’re excited to introduce this new technology to local communities,” Lyons said. “It’s been proven to help better the quality of life for people with heart failure.”

Lyons is board certified in cardiovascular disease and nuclear cardiology. He is also the first cardiologist in the Hudson Valley to be board certified in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology.

The seminar runs from 2-3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 8 in Conference Room B of the medical center at 45 Reade Place in the City of Poughkeepsie.
