Cardiovascular Services 
Cardiovascular disease affects more than 80 million Americans. It’s the number one cause of death in the U.S., claiming more lives each year than cancer, car accidents and AIDS combined.

Saint Louis University Hospital and SLUCare – the physicians of Saint Louis University – partner to provide one of the most comprehensive cardiovascular services in the region. From disease prevention to sophisticated treatments and rehabilitation, our care includes the most advanced equipment and technology to perform the newest procedures. We diagnose, treat and manage a number of cardiovascular diseases and disorders including:

  • Arrhythmias
  • Aneurysms (aortic and abdominal)
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart valve disease
  • Peripheral vascular disease (in arteries and veins)

Our goal is to become one of the region’s leading comprehensive centers for heart disease.
In fact, we recently launched the
Center for Comprehensive Cardiovascular Care, offering a new approach to heart care. SLUCare cardiologists and cardiac surgeons at Saint Louis University Hospital have developed a more patient-focused, individualized concept with the Center for Comprehensive Cardiovascular Care – the “C4.”

Co-directed by SLUCare physicians Michael Lim, MD, and Richard Lee, MD, the new center is housed on the hospital’s main campus and is highlighted by their specialized team’s fusion of what are normally two separate services – cardiology and cardiac surgery. This ensures that heart patients have all their medical teams working collaboratively to provide the best possible care.

Our team includes highly-trained medical professionals from the following fields:

  • Cardiac Catheterization
  • Cardiac Surgery
  • Clinical Cardiology
  • Dietary and Nutrition
  • Electrophysiology
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Pastoral Care
  • Pathology
  • Pharmacology
  • Preventive Cardiology
  • Radiology
  • Respiratory Therapy
  • Social Services
  • Vascular Surgery
