Amputation prevention practice adds cardiology practice
A local amputation prevention practice has merged with a cardiology practice.
Advanced Cardiac & Vascular Centers for Amputation Prevention has added Grand Rapids Cardiology.
Grand Rapids Cardiology will continue practicing out of its current office at 1310 East Beltline Ave. SE in Grand Rapids, but its name will change to ACV Grand Rapids Cardiology.
Led by cardiologist Dr. Ronald VanderLaan, Grand Rapids Cardiology and its 17 staff now will practice under the ACV Centers brand.
“Grand Rapids Cardiology has been an innovative, well-respected practice in West Michigan for the last decade,” said Dr. Jihad Mustapha, CEO of ACV Centers. “We have been very fortunate to work closely with Dr. VanderLaan and the GRC team for some time now, so we jumped at the opportunity to bring him on board.”
ACV Centers provides highly personalized and comprehensive cardiac, vascular and vein care, with a concentration on treating peripheral artery disease and the complications of critical limb ischemia.
The new partnership strengthens ACV Center’s cardiology offerings, including coronary catheterizations, congestive heart failure, arrhythmia, hypertension and preventative cardiology, among others.
“By joining forces, we hope to draw on our collective expertise to build a cardiac and vascular center for excellence,” VanderLaan said.
VanderLaan will be joined by interventional cardiologist Dr. Mohamad Saab to enhance cardiology offerings and patient care from the Grand Rapids Cardiology office.
Since its founding in February 2018 by Mustapha and Saab, ACV Centers now has 72 physicians and care team members practicing at two locations in Grand Rapids and one in Lansing. ACV physicians partner with primary care providers, podiatrists and wound care professionals to provide multi-disciplinary care. ACV physicians regularly remove blockages from arteries, returning blood flow and improving circulation.
