Cardiology is the specialty of medicine that deals exclusively with researching, diagnosing and treating disorders of the heart such as congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, and heart failure. Cardiologists also manage other conditions that could potentially affect the heart like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity with close observation or prescribing medication.
