Heart & vascular

    Our approach to cardiac care

    The cardiologists at SIU Medicine want to help every heart keep a healthy, steady beat. They take the time to listen and understand your symptoms and concerns.

    SIU Medicine’s Division of Cardiology is a multidisciplinary team of board-certified cardiac experts in heart arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure (or hypertension), congestive heart failure, vascular disease and more. They will diagnose your condition and establish an effective treatment plan tailored for your particular needs. In addition to our cardiologists, our Family Medicine and Pediatrics teams treat heart issues as well, always with a goal of helping you or your children maintain a full and active lifestyle. 

    Your health relies on the cardiovascular system maintaining its consistent metabolic equilibrium for your entire life. It’s a daunting task, and helps to explain why heart disease is the #1 killer in the United States. Our care teams include nationally recognized cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons, and members with extensive training in subspecialties to help with your heart and vascular health.
