Disorders of Lipoprotein Metabolism

Prevention and Regression Therapy for Atherosclerosis



Dr. Phillip Frost’s practice is devoted to helping people with high blood cholesterol or triglycerides avoid heart attack or stroke. Others who may benefit from consultation are those with extensive blood vessel disease of unclear cause.

All patients with angina (cardiac chest discomfort) or who have survived a heart attack (myocardial infarction), or who have undergone a heart blood vessel procedure (coronary artery bypass graft surgery, angioplasty, stent placement) will benefit from intensive risk factor reduction including the correction of all detectable lipoprotein abnormalities. Likewise, patients who have had thrombotic strokes or atherosclerosis of blood vessels serving the legs or kidneys and persons at increased risk for any of these clinical problems will benefit from aggressive risk factor reduction.

It has been shown repeatedly that men and women with blood vessel disease, or at high risk for a vascular event, will benefit from aggressive treatment of lipoprotein disorders. This benefit includes a marked decrease in new clinical events and improved longevity.

Dr. Frost sees patients primarily in his private practice and at the UCSF Lipid Faculty Practice.
