Heart and Vascular Institute of Wisconsin serves Northeast Wisconsin with a location on the west side of Appleton. We’re off College Avenue, near the Fox River Mall and Appleton International Airport.

For the past 50 years, the doctors of Heart and Vascular Institute of Wisconsin have provided our patients with high quality, compassionate care.

As health care continues to evolve, we have made the decision to return to private practice so we may have more control over day-to-day operations and patient care decisions. We believe that serving you as an independent cardiology group, will bring you the best experience along with the highest quality care at a lower cost.

Effective April 1, 2019, we began treating patients in our new state-of-the-art facility. This is the new home of the same cardiologists that have been providing care to northeast Wisconsin since 1968. At the Heart and Vascular Institute of Wisconsin we are able to provide diagnostic testing, labs and common, in-office procedures. We will continue to serve our outlying communities in New London, Ripon, Shawano, and Waupaca. Your cardiologist will also continue to provide services if you are admitted to a ThedaCare hospital or Ascension St. Elizabeth. At each hospital you must specifically ask for a Heart and Vascular cardiologist.

Let us reassure you that you will continue to receive the same exceptional care you have come to expect from us. We are excited about the ways this move allows us to improve your overall health care experience. Doing what is best for our patients will always remain our highest priority.

Any chance these are recorded so we can listen if not able to attend?

I wish I could have been there!

February is American Heart Month, a time when all people can focus on their cardiovascular health.

Unfortunately, the statistics related to cardiovascular disease (CVD) are quite sobering. For example, on average someone in the U.S. dies because of CVD every 34 seconds and dies from a stroke every 3 minutes. The fact is, for decades, CVD has been the #1 killer in America and claims more lives each year than all forms of cancer combined.

And here is what is more troubling, according to Heart and Vascular Institute cardiologist Dr. Carrie Chapman, "It's not just older people who are sedentary, overweight or smoke that have heart and vascular disease. Heart attacks and strokes are on the rise among Americans younger than 40. Since CVD is a silent disease with symptoms that are not always apparent, we are treating more and more younger patients. Heart month is a perfect time to get an annual physical and understand your risk. It could save your life."

And remember, this Friday February 3rd is Go Red Day so wear red to draw attention to the realities and risks for heart disease and stroke.

Great topics, and a great opportunity to learn

Thank you! Was trying to figure that out! 🤣

Cardiologist thoughts on collapse of football player Damar Hamlin

First, our thoughts and prayers go out to Damar Hamlin as he recovers from his cardiac arrest during last night's football game.

While medical details have not been released yet, cardiac electrophysiologist Dr. James Mariano offered some perspective. "A cardiac arrest during sports is rare but not unheard of. As opposed to being a heart attack, this event is usually caused by a structural or electrical abnormality of the heart, from an impact to the chest (known as Commotio Cordis), or from a thickened heart muscle (known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy). Right now we can only speculate on the cause, but he received quick intervention by medical personnel and we hope that he fully recovers from this event."

Great information to the general public. ❤️. Thank you Dr Mariano. Prayers to damar Hamlin, his family and the medical staff taking care of him.

Thank you for speaking from expertise.

Thanks for explaining the incident to non-medical people worried about how the incident occurred. Your info helps people understand rather than “jump to conclusions”. Again, thank you for taking your time to help people with your knowledge, an invaluable message!

I am thankful for you, Dr. Mariano.

Dr Mariano is my Dr and the best. Trust in his words and knowledge and keep praying.

Thank you for the information.

If the vaccine wasn’t causing so many heart attacks among young men this would’ve never even been posted. Whether this is or isn’t one of those, everyone realizes this, right? 🤦🏻‍♂️

So the ten fold increase in players collapsing in EU soccer, from forceful contact to the chest, I doubt that. Since 2021 the world is experiencing an unprecedented increase in the number of excess deaths, that needs to be explained, it's overall not from chest impacts or 🦠.

Thank you, Dr. Mariano❣️

Thank you Dr Mariano

So my question is, pre-existing condition or not, the vaccine could have exasperated the situation. Especially since the Boston globe reported on it 8 hours BEFORE it happened.

We know the cause 💉
