Care and treatment for every heart and vascular condition

Successful cardiovascular treatment needs a collaborative approach. Our experts include cardiologists, vascular specialists, certified cardiac care nurses, electrophysiologists, interventional radiologists, structural heart disease specialists, heart surgeons, vascular surgeons, advanced practitioners, and more. At the Park Nicollet Heart and Vascular Center, you’ll find complete heart and vascular treatment rooted in innovative perspectives – all in the same convenient location.

We’re accredited as a Mission: Lifeline® Heart Attack Receiving Center by the American Heart Association, so you can expect first-rate treatment, especially in time-sensitive situations. We’re also accredited in echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, vascular ultrasound and as an IAC Vein Center by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission. That means you’ll have access to the most advanced diagnostic and treatment procedures.

Whether it’s to find answers or get treatment, here you’ll find the best care from a coordinated team of leading heart and vascular experts. 

With constant attention from dedicated specialists, you’ll always get personalized treatment based on the most up-to-date, evidence-based medicine. From determining what’s causing your heart or vascular condition to helping you recover after surgery, we offer a full range of care from diagnosis and treatment to rehabilitation and prevention.

Heart and vascular surgery

If you need heart or vascular surgery, we’ll take the time to make sure you’re fully prepared and understand what to expect from your procedure. Our experts have decades of experience and use only the latest, most effective techniques and technology for surgeries, including:

  • Aortic surgery, aortic valve repair and aortic valve replacement
  • Mitral valve surgery, repair and replacement
  • Pulmonic or tricuspid valve surgery
  • Coronary bypass surgery
  • Left atrial appendage ligation during cardiac surgery
  • MAZE procedure for atrial fibrillation
  • Release of pericardial constriction
  • Congenital heart defect repair and correction
  • Esophagectomy
  • Lung resection
  • Carotid artery surgery
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (open)
  • Anterior spine exposure
  • Vein stripping
Rehabilitation and recovery

Your care doesn’t end after treatment or surgery. Our team of cardiologists, exercise physiologists, occupational therapists and dietitians provides personalized rehabilitation services to help you get back to what you enjoy:

  • Pulmonary rehabilitation
  • Nutrition consultations
  • Supervised exercise therapy
Prevention

If you’ve had a heart or vascular problem before, our preventive care services can help keep you healthy by working to avoid recurrences or setbacks. To help control risk factors, we offer:

  • Ongoing heart health evaluations
  • Lifestyle, diet and exercise recommendations
  • Blood lipid management, including cholesterol care
  • Blood pressure management

We also provide coronary artery calcium scores. For this service, we’ll use highly accurate CT scanning to detect small deposits of calcium in your coronary arteries. These deposits indicate plaque buildup that we can then treat proactively, before it becomes more serious.

We designed the Heart and Vascular Center with you and your family in mind.

Surrounded by large fireplaces and comfortable seating, you’ll find a soothing environment where you can focus on treatment and recovery. Scenic views and an elevated boardwalk alongside Minnehaha Creek offer a peaceful, revitalizing connection to nature. And with short waiting times and short walking distances between appointments, you’ll find everything you need for convenient, high-quality care centered on you.
