Greetings! I'm Dr. Kevin Accola, a cardiac surgeon who graduated from the University of Illinois in 1984. Throughout my career, I have conducted around 14,000 cardiac surgeries, focusing on heart valve procedures, accounting for 8,000 of those cases.

Our nursing staff is particularly noteworthy, as they provide comprehensive and attentive cardiac surgical care.
