The term "heart disease" is often used interchangeably with "cardiovascular disease" — a term that generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke. Other heart conditions, such as infections and conditions that affect your heart's muscle, valves or beating rhythm also are considered forms of heart disease. These matters of the heart are areas in which Dr. Alexander Alperovich has a vast interest and familiarity.

Dr. Alperovich’s knowledge and experience has earned him the highest praise of patients and colleagues alike.

The Peripheral Vascular System consists of the arteries, veins, and capillaries which carry blood throughout the body... to and from the heart.
- The arteries carry nutrient and oxygen-rich blood to the organs and cells
- The veins carry oxygen-depleted blood and wastes through the kidneys, liver, and lungs, to filter out waste and re-oxygenate the blood
- The arteries, veins, and tissues of the body are connected by the capillaries, small web like vessels that distribute fresh blood from the arteries to the body and collect depleted blood back into veins.
Dr. Alperovich helps his patients maintain healthy hearts, monitoring and maintaining the Peripheral Vascular System is an integral part of any heart-healthy plan. Peripheral Vascular Disease is common, affecting over 5% of adults over the age of 50. Half of these patients do not experience symptoms, which can be very dangerous, as the disease can worsen significantly while going unnoticed, potentially leading to serious complications.
