University Heart


Nothing means more to your peace of mind than the health of your heart. Its ability to pump blood, carrying life-sustaining oxygen and nutrients, impacts the entire body. Statistics show that cardiovascular disease is America's leading health problem, and the leading cause of death.

University Heart provides the most comprehensive care in Mississippi for heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. About one in three Americans has some form of heart disease, including high blood pressure (hypertension), coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke and other conditions, according to the American Heart Association.

As part of the state's only academic medical center, our team of cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons, electrophysiologists and interventional cardiologists work together to develop better ways to treat and manage heart disease at any stage.

Our nationally recognized specialists, technologically advanced facilities and leading-edge research offer the best in prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of heart-related conditions and diseases.
