Monday- Friday: 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
These cardiologists from Minneapolis Heart Institute® bring a full range of heart health care to the Plymouth community.
Angina is chest pain caused by poor blood flow through the blood vessels of the heart muscle.
Heart attack happens when an artery that feeds your heart muscle becomes blocked with plaque (fatty deposits) or by a clot. When the blood cannot flow to the heart, damage or death to the heart muscle may occur.
Heart rhythm problems
Arrhythmia or dysrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat or rhythm. There are many kinds.
High blood pressure
Blood pressure is the amount of pressure within the walls of your arteries. High blood pressure is increased pressure against artery walls.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) occurs when plaque clogs the arteries in your legs, reducing blood flow to your legs and feet.
A stroke results when blood and oxygen flow to the brain is stopped or interrupted. This happens because of a ruptured or blocked blood vessel.
The number one killer in the United States, cardiovascular disease affects the heart and blood vessels. Our experts can identify, treat and help you manage cardiac conditions.
Center for Advanced Heart Failure Treatment brings together a team that specializes in heart failure and understands how to manage it. The team works closely with each patient, the patient's primary care doctor and the patient's family. This coordinated approach focuses on the individual needs of each patient and family and helps them live with heart failure more comfortably and easily.
Cardiac Device Clinic: Pacemaker and ICD follow up
If a pacemaker or ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) helps regulate your heartbeat, we can make sure your cardiac device is working properly. Our experts will evaluate your cardiac device and adjust settings so that you benefit the most.
Programs for adults who are at risk for heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases. It also addresses the needs of patients who have had previous heart-related health problems to prevent further occurrences or progression of heart disease.
Heart rhythm problems (also called irregular heartbeat or arrhythmia) are the result of abnormal electrical impulses that cause the heart to beat too quickly, too slowly or irregularly. Learn more about the many types of arrhythmias.

Minneapolis Heart Institute's vascular services offers a full range of treatments for both routine and rare vascular conditions.
Four out of five Minnesota women are at risk for heart disease. This program tailors cardiovascular care to fit the specific needs of women.
When you have a rhythm problem with your heart (usually when it beats too slowly or if both sides of your heart don't beat together), you may need a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a medical device that can help your heart beat regularly.
ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator)
If your heart is beating too fast or irregularly, your doctor may decide that you need a device that gives your heart an electrical shock to restore your heart to a regular rhythm. This device is called an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD).
Coronary CT angiography
This new tool uses a special type of CT scanner to get a three-dimensional view of your blood vessels. This allows doctors to see whether plaque has built up in the artery wall that may cause a future heart attack or symptoms.
An echocardiogram uses sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart.
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test that records the electrical activity of the heart.
An exercise stress test is a screening tool to test the effect of exercise on your heart. It provides an overall look at the health of your heart.
Stress echocardiography uses ultrasound imaging to determine how the heart muscles respond to stress. It is mainly used to diagnose and evaluate coronary artery disease.
Holter and event monitoring
A Holter monitor will record your heart rhythm during your everyday activities. For this test, you will wear a portable EKG machine. You will have a Holter monitor for 24 or 48 hours.
Nuclear cardiology/Nuclear stress test
Also called nuclear ventriculography, this test uses safe, radioactive materials called tracers to show the heart chambers.
Peripheral vascular imaging
A noninvasive peripheral vascular exam measures blood pressure and blood flow using sound waves created by a device called a doppler. You will have a test done while you rest and while you exercise on a treadmill. This test helps tell if there are blockages in the leg arteries. This test takes about 30 minutes when looking at leg veins, and 45 minutes or longer when looking at the leg arteries.
