Our Professional Healthcare Associates
To supplement the medical lipid evaluation and treatment by Dr. Brinton, the Utah Lipid Center offers expert dietary consultations. The Utah Lipid Center has four nurses who lend their expertise to the LDL apheresis program, Brad Martin, RN, Patti Stringham, RN, Christine Jenson, RN, and Becky Jenson, RN. LDL apheresis is FDA approved for treatment of severe hypercholesterolemia, refractory to medical therapy, and we are the only LDL-apheresis site between Denver and the West Coast. We have several years' experience with the Kaneka Liposorber and are one of very few LDL apheresis centers in the US also offering patients a choice of the newly updated Braun HELP apheresis device.
In addition to LDL apheresis, we offer advanced medical treatment for severe hypercholesterolemia, severe hypertriglyceridemia, and statin intolerance.
The Utah Lipid Center is the only full-service Lipid-Specialty Clinic in Utah
The Utah Lipid Center, in Salt Lake City, has the only LDL apheresis program between Denver and the West Coast.
We accept physician- and self-referrals from the 7-state Intermountain Region, across the US and from foreign countries for severe or difficult-to-manage dyslipidemias. We do not provide primary care or cardiology care, just specialty treatment for dyslipidemias and related disorders, such as diabetes and obesity. The Utah Lipid Center serves patients of all ages, including children with severe lipid disorders.
