Scripps Cardiologist Specializes in Prevention and Personalized Care


[begin music]>>Evan Muse: My name is Evan Muse and I’m
a cardiologist. I practice at Scripps Green and Scripps Clinic as well as the Prebys Cardiovascular
Institute in La Jolla. As a general cardiologist I treat diseases
ranging from valvular disease to arrhythmias atherosclerotic heart disease and one of my
main focuses on preventing disease. trying to understand what a patients risk factors
are for a developing heart disease and then trying to fully optimize those risk factors
to keep folks out of the hospital. I’m a physician scientist. In addition to
doing clinical cardiology I do research in the laboratory. I try and come up with novel
methods of treatment and prevention of atherosclerotic heart disease on the cellular level. Coming from medicine from the research perspective,
there’s lots of insights we gain from our patients and also insights from the lab we
like to bring back to our patients. We’re constantly striving to improve care and to
improve diagnostic methods, and improve our understanding of the human condition. To be a part of a rich family of physicians
and patient care representatives and associates of the Scripps family, it’s really empowering
in terms of being able to take advances in diagnostic techniques, advances in science
and really have those play out for patient care as soon as possible. We’re able to
run clinical trials in genomics, mobile medicine and new interventional techniques that other
centers aren’t able to complete. Out advances in mobile connectivity and digital
sensors have really revolutionized the way that we’re able to practice medicine and
will continue doing so. Think of a patient with high blood pressure just having a single
blood pressure measured in the doctors office. We’re now able to get daily measurements
many times or even continuous blood pressure measurements in patients that is really going
to help us really better tailor their treatment and help them manage this disease. To see a patient have made improvements how
ever they can make an improvement on managing or preventing disease, that’s what’s meaningful
to me. [end music]
