At Prairie Heart Institute, we believe world-class cardiac care begins with giving our patients access to the world’s best – and most promising – research. Partnering with a network of the world’s premier research partners gives each of our physician’s access to the latest clinical trials and other groundbreaking advances.
Where a better approach leads to breakthrough ideas
Our top medical researchers don’t simply look for new solutions. They anticipate our patients’ needs, and then relentlessly search for better ways to meet them. Taking a proactive approach to research gives our physicians – and their patients – a distinct advantage in the diagnosis and treatment of most cardiac conditions.
From pioneering revolutionary procedures like Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) to being among the first to use biodegradable stents, the work of our esteemed research team is impacting patients throughout Central Illinois – and beyond.
Here are some of the latest advances made possible by our award-winning research team:
