Cardiovascular Associates of North Jersey

About Us

We are a comprehensive cardiology practice dedicated to delivering personalized evidence-based cardiovascular care in a comfortable environment. Our four board-certified and highly accredited physicians work with each patient to provide individualized care.

We treat patients with a variety of cardiovascular conditions including valvular heart disease, coronary artery disease, atrial arrhythmias, congestive heart failure and hypertension. We work closely with our patients’ primary care physicians at every stage of the condition to achieve an optimal outcome.

We also focus on preventive cardiology assessing cardiovascular disease risk factors and developing a comprehensive treatment plan to aggressively prevent heart disease.

Our mission is to help you live a longer and healthier life.

Our Doctor

Aron Schwarcz, MD

Dr. Aron Schwarcz completed his Internal Medicine residency, as well as his Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology Fellowships at Montefiore Medical Center. In 2013, he was inducted into the Leo M. Davidoff society of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine for outstanding achievement in the teaching of medical students.

Dr. Schwarcz joined Cardiovascular Associates of North Jersey in 2013 as the Interventional Cardiologist of the group. Most of his procedures are performed at the cath lab at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. There he is involved in many committees including the Coronary Artery Disease Subcommittee and he chairs the STEMI Door to Balloon Committee. He is co-director of the Coronary Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO) program, which he helped establish in 2015. He has also been the Primary Investigator for a number of nationwide clinical research studies at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center including ones on the use of antiplatelets after Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI). He is also part of the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) team at Englewood Hospital.

His areas of interest are coronary artery disease, acute coronary syndromes, high risk and complex percutaneous coronary interventions including chronic total occlusions, adjunctive tools during cardiac catheterizations and cardiovascular research.

While he is passionate about his work in the cath lab, he feels it is essential to take the time to explain and discuss the care plan with the patient and their family. Communication and education is critical to get the best outcome with the patient.

He lives in Bergen County with his wife and 3 children. He is an avid sports fan, enjoying going to sporting events with his family.

    An electrocardiogram is a test that screens for problems with the electrical activity of the heart. Electrodes are placed on various areas of the chest and a monitor records the heartbeats onto lines of paper. Electrocardiograms can help determine the causes of chest pain and can detect abnormal heart rhythms.

    An echocardiogram uses ultrasound technology (sound waves) to create a moving picture of the heart on a screen. It’s a real-time, 3D picture that can let a physician determine the size of the heart, how it’s functioning and the thickness and movement of the heart wall. It is also the test of choice to evaluate the function of the heart valves.

    Chest X-Ray
    Chest x-rays are used to create an image of the heart, lungs and chest on film, in order to diagnose heart and lung diseases.

    Carotid Ultrasound
    A carotid ultrasound uses sound wave technology on the carotid artery (artery in the neck) to check for narrowing or stenosis. The ultrasound helps to determine if plaque has built up in the artery walls. A narrow artery can lead to stroke.

    Nuclear/Treadmill Stress Testing
    A stress test is primarily used to identify coronary artery disease. It requires patients to exercise on a treadmill or exercisebicycle while their heart rate, blood pressure, electrocardiogram (ECG), and symptoms are monitored. A nuclear stress test measures blood flow to your heart muscle both at rest and during stress on the heart. It’s performed similarly to a routine exercise stress test, but provides images that can show areas of low blood flow through the heart and areas of damaged heart muscle. If a patient is unable to exercise, then an intravenous medication called Lexiscan is used instead of the exercise portion of the test.

    Holter Monitoring
    Holter monitor is a machine that continuously records the heart’s rhythms. The monitor is usually worn for 24 – 48 hours during normal activity. Electrodes (small conducting patches) are stuck onto your chest and attached to a small recording monitor. You carry the Holter monitor in a pocket or small pouch worn around your neck or waist. The data delievered by the monitor can help your physician diagnose irregular heartbeats.

    Home Telemetry Monitoring
    Remote telemertry is a way to provide continuous monitoring of your heart. A small portable monitor is worn by placing 5 patches (electrodes) to the chest and the monitor fits into a pocket or worn on a belt loop. The electrodes pick up signals from your heart and your physician can see real-time data of your heart.

    Transesophageal echocardiograms
    Using a very small tube passed through the esophagus, a transeophageal echocardiogram can help your physician see the heart’s activity through an ultrasound. Very clear images of the heart can be obtained to help diagnose certain disorders.

    Cardiac catheterization and angiography
    Cardiac catheterization (or coronary angiogram) involves passing a thin flexible tube (catheter) into the right or left side of the heart, usually from the groin or the arm. The catheter is carefully threaded into the heart using an x-ray machine that produces real-time pictures (fluoroscopy). A contrast agent or dye is inserted into the coronary arteries to diagnose any obstruction to blood flow. If a significant blockage is diagnosed, it may be fixed with a mesh tube called a stent that is placed through the artery without the need for surgery. Occasionally more extensive blockages are diagnosed that required bypass surgery.
