Our specialists provide comprehensive cardiology care in close collaboration with other specialists throughout Norton Healthcare.

Our board-certified cardiologists have the skill and sophisticated tools to make a precise diagnosis that will guide a customized treatment plan tailored to your condition and needs.

Cardiology Expertise Close to Home

Our team of cardiologists includes specialists in interventional cardiology, advanced heart failure and electrophysiology. The heart specialists work with cardiothoracic  surgeons, vascular surgeons  and other specialists to make sure each patient has access to the best care available.

Norton Heart Specialists is a team of more than 37 heart doctors and additional advanced-level providers. Our highly trained cardiologists and other specialists provide a full spectrum of cardiology care.

Our cardiology practices have more than a dozen locations in Louisville and Southern Indiana. That means we can provide convenient diagnosis, treatment and long-term follow-up for a wide variety of cardiovascular conditions.

Our cardiologists are at the forefront of the latest heart treatments. If your condition requires surgery, our interventional cardiologists have expertise in minimally invasive procedures using the latest equipment that can have you home sooner and feeling more like yourself.

Our specialists have been able to replace the need for open-heart surgery in many cases with minimally invasive procedures. There are conditions, such as heart valve disorders, where an open-heart procedure may be the best option for you. Norton Cardiothoracic Surgery works closely with your cardiologist to create a long-term care plan following surgical repair.
