(Includes Interventional Cardiology, Invasive Cardiology and Non-invasive Cardiology)
Cardiology is often the first line of defense when treating heart disease. If a heart condition is caught early, procedures such as angioplasty can treat the disease when it can be managed more easily. We put an emphasis on early detection and treatment because it can help avoid more serious problems later.
Sometimes heart disease requires surgery to repair the heart or surrounding vessels. Our cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons are experienced specialists who regularly perform advanced procedures such as open-heart and valve surgery.
Electrophysiology is the detection and treatment of problems within the heart's electrical system. With a team of electrophysiologists on staff, we are able to offer advanced diagnosis and treatment of all heart rhythm disturbances.
Treating heart disease among children requires specialized knowledge. One of the few pediatric cardiology programs in the state is located at Ministry Health Care's Saint Joseph's Children's Hospital in Marshfield. The program is staffed by Marshfield Clinic pediatric cardiologists, the only specialists of this kind in the region.
Cardiac rehabilitation helps patients get back to their lives earlier and with fewer complications. Our specially-trained staff are located throughout Wisconsin to provide you with convenient access close to where you live.
Research and Clinical Trials
New medicines and procedures are developed through research and tested using clinical trials. Our cardiac research program at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation is the area's largest. It enhances our ability to provide the advantages of new medications and treatment techniques before they are widely available. We don't wait for advances in cardiovascular care; we help to create them.
We offer the most advanced, comprehensive cardiac care in central and northern Wisconsin and can handle most any case, with the exception of transplants. The lists of diagnostic services and treatment options may not be all inclusive. If you have a question about a specific test or procedure, please do not hesitate to contact our team.
In addition to regular clinic services, Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and device clinics are located throughout the region.
