About the Division
Despite significant advances in diagnosis and treatment, cardiovascular disease remains one of the leading causes of death for both men and women in the United States. Major advances in diagnosis and patient care continue to evolve. USC Cardiovascular Medicine is leading the way.
The focus of our Cardiologists is on the patient: the care for the patient, the most sophisticated diagnosis of their disease, the best possible treatment; and the research that allows USC Cardiologists to deliver the best to their patients. Our approach is to be partners with our patients and their primary physicians as we apply advancing science and complex technology to maintain their health and well-being.
The 21st century is challenging us to develop more effective ways to involve patients in decisions regarding their own health care, to develop disease-prevention and effective outpatient disease-management programs and to utilize information technology to improve the quality of our care.
Meanwhile, because many of our patients have chest pain and shortness of breath which could be symptoms of life threatening disease, such as heart attacks and arrhythmias, our cardiologists are always available to treat our patients at any time, day or night.
The physicians of the Division Cardiovascular Medicine stand ready to meet these challenges in patient care, research, and information technology.
