Cardiovascular Care Team

Dedicated to Providing Exceptional Care
Offering the largest, most advanced cardiovascular program in northern Wisconsin, ThedaCare’s heart facilities and cardiovascular specialists deliver the highest level of care to diagnose your problem and get you well.

Know Where to Start
If you suspect you have a heart or vascular problem (view the risks and warning signs of cardiovascular disease), start by making an appointment with your primary care doctor. You may be referred directly to a cardiovascular specialist after this appointment, or your doctor may perform some basic diagnostic tests to confirm your diagnosis.

If the results are normal, he or she will likely handle your care. If your test results are abnormal, your primary care doctor will decide if you need the services of a cardiovascular specialist for further assessment and possible treatment.

A Comprehensive Team of Specialists
When you meet with a cardiovascular specialist, you’ll discuss your symptoms and the results of any tests you’ve taken. Your specialist will talk with your primary care doctor ahead of time, so you’ll both be on the same page. Together, you’ll create a care plan, which will outline any additional tests or treatment needed.

Our team of cardiovascular specialists has knowledge and expertise in all areas and sub-specialties of cardiovascular care, to diagnose and treat your specific problem. Our team includes:

  • 16 board-certified cardiologists
  • Two board-certified interventional cardiologists, including three peripheral vascular specialists
  • Two board-certified cardiac electrophysiologists
  • A board-certified vascular medicine/lipid specialist
  • A board-certified cardio-thoracic surgeon
  • 10 advanced nurse practitioners and physician assistants who specialize in cardiovascular disease

Together, this team cares for more than 25,000 patients and performs more than 20,000 cardiovascular surgeries, procedures, and diagnostic tests each year, so you can feel confident that you’re receiving the best care available.
