The Department of Cardiology at University Hospital provides comprehensive evaluation, consultation, and medical and surgical management of diseases of the heart and circulatory system. With the latest technology, skilled physicians and compassionate staff, the Institute provides care for abnormalities of cardiac rhythm and conduction, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathies, heart failure and valvular heart disease.
A full range of invasive and non-invasive diagnostic as well as interventional modalities are available. From the surgical perspective, leading edge techniques and technology, such as robotic surgery, ensure the safest, most effective treatment modalities are chosen.
Our physicians pursue a program of cardiac research supported by the National Institutes of Health, medical foundations, and other sources. The department of Cardiology physician-researchers are published in the world’s leading cardiac journal and routinely contribute to advances in cardiac care, including in the development of gene-based therapies for various kinds of cardiovascular disease.
