Broad-Based Heart Care
By uniting expert, compassionate care with our extensive clinical and research resources, UT Southwestern’s cardiologists, surgeons, researchers, and other specialists have the knowledge, expertise, and medical resources necessary to properly treat the complete spectrum of cardiovascular conditions.
Our team works closely with patients to improve their cardiovascular health – whether they’ve had a heart attack, suffer from heart failure or congenital heart disease, have peripheral vascular diseases, or are at risk for developing another cardiovascular condition.
Our physicians also work in unison with researchers to deliver the most advanced therapeutic techniques available to treat heart and vascular conditions. Our diagnostic and treatment facilities enable cardiologists, vascular experts, and other specialists to offer advanced tests and procedures that significantly contribute to improved cardiovascular health.
Personalized Heart Care
UT Southwestern’s focus on providing individualized cholesterol management, hypertension control, and cardiac rehabilitation services provides patients with personal cardiovascular education to meet their needs. Exercise training, stress management, and nutritional instruction are specifically tailored with them in mind.
Our dedication to excellence in cardiovascular health care is exemplified by the consistent results achieved by our heart transplant program, which exceeds national averages for one-year, five-year, and 10-year survival rates. The Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery is also actively involved in groundbreaking clinical and research activities that continuously advance the science of cardiovascular diagnosis and treatment.
