St. Louis Heart Surgeons, Heart Doctors, and Cardiovascular Specialists at SLU Hospital

It’s a new approach to heart care. SLUCare cardiologists and cardiac surgeons at Saint Louis University Hospital have developed a more patient-focused, individualized concept with the Center for Comprehensive Cardiovascular Care – the “C4.”

Co-directed by SLUCare physicians Michael Lim, MD and Richard Lee, MD, the new center is housed on the hospital’s main campus and is highlighted by their specialized team’s fusion of what are normally two separate services – cardiology and cardiac surgery. This ensures that heart patients have all their medical teams working collaboratively to provide the best possible care.
