University of Virginia’s Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, led by Brian H. Annex, MD, is nationally recognized for excellence in clinical care, research and teaching. Faculty members provide expert, comprehensive care for all forms of cardiovascular disease through UVA Heart and Vascular Center, which serves more than 5,000 patients at University Hospital and an additional 43,000 in outpatient clinics each year. In the past two years we have been recognized as one of the top Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery programs by US News and World Reports.
The division’s clinical practice covers a wide range of disciplines, including general cardiovascular disease and prevention, cardiac imaging, diagnostic and interventional electrophysiology and cardiac catheterization, valvular heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, basic and advanced heart failure, mechanical support, congenital heart disease and vascular-related diseases. Its research faculty and professional research staff excel in patient-focused research, with over 100 active grants and total annual research funding of approximately $16 million.
The collaborative approach the division takes to patient care brings together specialists from cardiovascular medicine, pediatric cardiology, congenital cardiac surgery, thoracic and vascular surgery and interventional radiology to optimize treatment for each individual patient. ~ Brian H.
