What is Sports Cardiology?

The first-ever reported exercise-related death in history dates back to when the Greeks won the battle against the Persians in Marathon. A foot messenger was told to run back to Athens to deliver the joyous news, but he collapsed and was pronounced dead after arrival and after shouting his message.

Hippocrates’ tutor, the Greek physician Herodicus is widely regarded as the father of sports medicine. He taught gymnastics and understood the association between therapeutic exercise and a good diet for good overall health. Nowadays, heart doctors understand this association far more closely, and top athletes often rely heavily on sports medicine, especially when there is a risk of sudden cardiac death. Since 2011, when the American College of Cardiology developed the Exercise and Sports Cardiology Section sports cardiology has been a subspecialty of cardiology.

The main goal of our best heart doctor in Manhattan is to assess and evaluate athletes to ensure safe participation in athletics.
