Cardiovascular Medicine

Dr. Daniel R. Anderson
Associate Professor, Internal Medicine
Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine

Our clinical faculty in the Division have been actively involved in maintaining state-of-the-art cardiovascular care for our patients in Nebraska and throughout the Midwest. The UNMC cardiovascular program leads the region and serves as the State’s only cardiac transplant program under the direction of our Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Director, Dr. Brian Lowes. Currently in the greater Omaha area, our Structural Heart Disease and Interventional program stands alone with growing volumes and superb outcomes with TAVR, MitraClip, ASD closure, Watchman, and complex high-risk PCI led by Dr. Gregory Pavlides and Dr. Yiannis Chatzizisis. Dr. Shane Tsai directs one of the finest programs in advanced electrophysiology including complex ablation, device implantation and lead extraction. Advanced imaging included cardiac CT, MRI and echo are directed by Dr. Samer Sayyed, along with the depth of research and clinical support of Dr. Thomas Porter. In partnership with Children’s Hospital and Medical Center of Omaha, Dr. Jonathan Cramer directs our Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program.

Under the direction of Arthur Easley, MD, our fellowship programs continue to grow. This highly competitive program receives over 500 applications annually for our seven available slots. Graduates of the three-year General Cardiology Fellowship Program have a greater than 95 percent pass rate on their Cardiology Boards. Formal subspecialty training is also available in interventional cardiology, electrophysiology and advanced heart failure and cardiac transplantation.

Blended into the fabric of all of our activities here in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at UNMC and Nebraska Medicine is our commitment of clinical and translational research.  Our faculty are active innovators and participants in multiple clinical trials and integrated into our Cardiovascular Research Center focused on basic science and translational research.
