Professor of cardiology
Dr. Adhir Shroff is professor of cardiology, clinical chief 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 UI Health, UIC’s health system, perform more than 90% of cardiac catheterizations using this technique, well above the national average.
Shroff is a core member of the structural heart disease team at UI Health and an expert on diagnosing and treating arterial blockage in patients. He also has an interest in the economics of health care and developing value-based care programs and pathways.
