Patient Care

U.S. News 2021-22 Nationally Ranked in Cardiology and Heart Surgery
UT Southwestern Medical Center is ranked in the nation’s top 11 hospitals for cardiology and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report for 2021-22.

Physicians and patients alike benefit from the integrative and collaborative approach to cardiovascular care taken by cardiologists at UT Southwestern's Clinical Heart Center. Our team comprises specialists in virtually every aspect of modern cardiology, including the management of all forms of heart disease, their predisposing risk factors, and their complications.

Patient care is multidisciplinary as well. Cardiologists work with physicians and researchers from other divisions and departments as part of multidisciplinary teams to evaluate patients and perform complex procedures. We believe that the collaborative, multidisciplinary approach promotes excellence in patient care.

UT Southwestern cardiologists treat approximately 600 patients every month. Because we are a respected academic medical center with a reputation for offering vast clinical expertise, we tend to see the most severely ill patients, often on referral from other physicians in the region. As a result, cardiology physicians, researchers, and students experience opportunities to expand their knowledge and abilities, and to grow professionally and personally.
