Whether you've been referred for diagnostic testing, cardiac treatment or disease management, your best interests are at the heart of every medical recommendation we make and every care option we provide.
Our experienced cardiologists perform two important roles: in addition to their clinical practice, they are also involved with clinical research and education. This expertise is enhanced by our close relationship with the Swedish Heart & Vascular Institute.
Our cardiologists actively participate in a large number of clinical trials – pharmacological as well as trials for new cardiovascular devices. In addition, they closely collaborate with cardiac surgeons, vascular surgeons, cardiologists and interventional radiologists from around the region in a wide range of research and educational efforts.
A key result of our extensive involvement with research and education is that we are able to offer our patients the region’s highest level of cardiac care. In turn, patient outcomes are significantly improved.
Swedish Heart and Vascular provides clinical services in coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, neurovascular disease, arrhythmia, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathy and congenital heart disease. Our patients have access to the latest interventional technologies, which include:
