Milwaukee Heart Institute
Treating Cardiovascular Diseases in Wisconsin and Northern Illinois
Cardiovascular disease remains America's #1 cause of death—every 33 seconds another life is lost to the disease. The professionals of the Milwaukee Heart Institute have dedicated their careers to the fight against heart disease and continue to make significant contributions to the field.
The Milwaukee Heart Institute, located within Aurora Sinai Medical Center, is home to a world-prominent electrophysiology program and one of the nation's top cardiology programs. Cardiac services include:
- Cardiac surgery
- Electrophysiology program
- Interventional cardiology
- Pacemaker clinic
- Peripheral vascular clinic
- State-of-the-art cardiac diagnostics
- Wellness and prevention
Aurora Sinai specializes in interventional cardiac procedures and has led the way in the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral vascular disease. It is committed to education and research and home to one of two fellowship training programs for physicians in the city.
Aurora Sinai is dedicated to pursuing clinical research that brings new treatment options to patients. A perfect example of this is focal ablation, our evolutionary new procedure that offers a potential cure for atrial fibrillation (a rapid heart beat). Aurora Sinai is one of a limited number of facilities in the country that performs focal ablation.
