The Best in Collaborative Care

Heart conditions can be complicated, requiring the expertise of a variety of cardiovascular specialists. Our integrated services include collaborative care from physicians with deep sub-specialty expertise in cardiology and cardiovascular surgery, complimented by experts from many medical fields with University of Minnesota Physicians.

At the University of Minnesota Medical Center, uncommon conditions are not uncommon. We have the experience and expertise to treat the most challenging cases, but we also apply that same level of dedication to more routine problems.

You can rely on us for everything from prevention and early diagnosis to treatment and heart transplantation. We have received the Blue Distinction Center for Cardiac Care by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota for our heart care program. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded our heart transplant program a Bronze Award for excellence based on our excellent outcomes.
