Cardiovascular conditions affect more Americans than any other disease. While someone dies every 37 seconds in this country from heart disease, many cardiovascular conditions can be successfully treated, if not easily prevented, by qualified heart doctors.
The NorthShore Cardiovascular Institute features a multidisciplinary team of nationally and internationally renowned cardiologists, cardiovascular and vascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, cardiac imaging experts and other highly trained specialists who work as one in a highly collaborative environment.
Most patients first access our cardiovascular services through our general cardiology program. Usually serving as your “primary” physician with the NorthShore Cardiovascular Institute, our general cardiologists provide expertise and guidance for all of the common cardiovascular conditions, such as:

Cardiovascular Condition Prevention, Treatment and Referral
NorthShore provides patients with the very latest cardiovascular treatment, from novel drug therapy to innovative minimally-invasive and surgical techniques. Every year we perform hundreds of cardiac catheterizations, coronary and heart valve interventions, cardiac surgeries and electrophysiological procedures.
Of course, helping prevent a first heart attack or stroke remains our ultimate goal as your healthcare provider. In addition to medical management, our general cardiologists may recommend healthy lifestyle changes to improve your heart health, from diet modification to smoking cessation. Our team may also recommend specific screening and genetic testing for patients who have a strong family history of certain cardiovascular conditions to help better prevent and treat these conditions.
