Associate professor of cardiology, UIC College of Medicine
Dr. Adhir Shroff is associate professor of cardiology and director of the cardiac catheterization lab and interventional cardiology fellowship program at UIC College of Medicine.
He has helped to pioneer a safer method to perform heart catheterizations by using the radial artery in the wrist. Patients experience much less pain, recover more quickly and have less complications. Shroff is a national leader on this procedure and has trained hundreds of physicians on radial catheterizations. He chairs a national working group to improve the safety of cardiac catheterization procedures.
Physicians at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System perform more than 80% of cardiac catheterizations using this technique, well above the national average.
He also trains physicians on the use of hemodynamic support devices to help patients whose hearts may be too weak to undergo other cardiac procedures like angioplasty or catheterization.
Shroff is an expert on diagnosing and treating arterial blockage in stable and unstable patients. He also has an interest in the economics of health care and developing value-based care programs and pathways.
