Research & Clinical Trials
You probably don’t think of Waukesha, Wisconsin as a place where international research studies take place, but that’s exactly what’s happening at the Waukesha Heart Institute. In fact, Sanjay Singh, M.D., F.A.C.C. has been the Principal Investigator on a number of international research studies and clinical trials which have led to advancements in heart and vascular care.
These studies place us at the forefront of new techniques and medications which we can utilize to help patients live healthier lives. Since we are involved in the studies we can sometimes offer patients the latest medications or techniques before they become standard practice and often at no charge to the patient.
Our research team is at the forefront of advancements in heart and vascular care and is currently participating in international clinical trials and research studies. The research center addresses cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, congestive heart failure, renal vascular hypertension, peripheral vascular and macrovascular disease.
