This week we will discuss Functional Medicine as it relates to Cardiology.  Our guest today is Dr. Trent Orfanos.

Dr. Trent Orfanos is the Director of Integrative and Functional Cardiology at Case Integrative Health.  Dr. Orfanos brings decades of experience in both Cardiology and Integrative Medicine.  

In his own words: "I practiced adult invasive, nuclear, noninvasive, and interventional cardiology from 1982 to 2019.  From 2010 to 2019, I embraced preventative cardiology from a functional medicine perspective while maintaining my full-time interventional cardiology practice. I saw my patients flourish with these functional medicine interventions who were previously deteriorating with only conventional care. This was very gratifying for myself and my patients."  At CIH, Dr. Orfanos will continue to practice his functional philosophy and expand his toolkit for serving patients.  ​
