Seeing you get back to the things you love is at heart of the care we provide. Our goal in delivering advanced cardiovascular care is to minimize the time you spend in recovery to help you live a longer, healthier and happier life.
Our team approach to care helps you feel better — even before you are in recovery. From prevention through treatment, our cardiologists, cardiac interventionalists and surgeons work together to provide a complete evaluation of your condition, monitoring your progress and, if needed, utilizing the most effective and minimally invasive treatment options. With leading-edge capabilities and our providers' dedication to our local community, more lives have been saved than ever before.
Because no matter when complications arise – we're here for you, offering convenient access to the area’s only facility performing cath lab diagnostics, primary angioplasty procedures and cardiothoracic surgery 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery
Our expertise in minimally invasive surgical practices has made Froedtert Pleasant Prairie Hospital a destination for cardiothoracic and vascular surgeries. Here, patients have access to the advanced treatments for the heart and its valves, aorta, arteries, and muscles and experts who provide leading-edge care to give you faster relief – and recovery – from serious conditions.
We also offer advanced treatments for arrhythmia, or abnormal heartbeat. This common condition can be serious and requires an accurate diagnosis to ensure you receive the treatment that's right for you. Our team is highly experienced in electrophysiology – studying abnormal heartbeat – to help you rest assured that the treatments we recommend will be a real answer for your condition.
Froedtert South’s local expertise and collaboration with the Medical College of Wisconsin ensures effective treatment of even the most challenging heart conditions. Not needing to travel far means an even shorter road to recovery and even faster treatment — particularly when every minute matters.
