Heart Disease (Cardiology)

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of Americans today. If you have heart disease, or are at risk for it, you should know that Michigan Medicine's Samuel and Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center is a nationally recognized leader in the diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular diseases. And while we're known for our ability to handle the most advanced cases, we'd really like to keep yours from becoming advanced in the first place. Here, our team of doctors and researchers who make huge advances in medicine are the same ones who work with you to make sure you get the most advanced treatment.

U-M Cardiovascular Center Treats Multiple Heart Problems

Our comprehensive Center draws its strength from a spectrum of divisions to diagnose and treat the full scope of cardiovascular issues, including:

Each year we treat more than 6,000 hospital inpatients and see more than 35,000 outpatients.

If you’re looking for routine care, we’ve got you covered. If we find you need more specialized evaluation and management, we have our multidisciplinary team of experts, not only from every facet of cardiology, but also from every department within the Health System, when needed, to collaborate on your individual case. That means your care is comprehensive, your diagnosis is accurate, and your treatment plan is the very best for you.

Our Cardiovascular Center is ranked among the top 25 hospitals in the U.S. for heart, vascular and stroke care. We offer nationally known programs in heart failure, heart transplant, stroke, valve surgery, implanted heart-assist devices, heart rhythm disorders, preventive heart care, and vascular medicine and surgery. And, our surgeons and interventional specialists perform procedures that no one else in the region performs.

Because of our commitment to quality, improvement and research, our patients get the best care available. They also have access to innovative treatment options and research opportunities through our many clinical trials.
