Biography

Dr. Mathew is the Director of Cardiology at Loyola Medicine, and has been a high volume academic interventional cardiologist for over 2 decades. Prior to coming to Loyola, he was at Mayo Clinic from 1997-2016, where he was the highest volume and most often referred to interventional cardiologist for much of his tenure, held a number of leadership positions in the cardiac and vascular practices, with joint appointments in the departments of medicine, cardiology, and radiology.
He has extensive experience in interventional cardiology including complex CAD, peripheral arterial interventions, and TAVR. He has been a leading clinical investigator in many trials that have evaluated and led to the approval of currently used technologies, such as coronary stents/drug eluting stents and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
Dr. Mathew is board certified in interventional cardiology and cardiovascular diseases. He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and a Fellow of the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions. He has been actively involved in these and other cardiovascular professional societies, with an active interest in developing integrated, high quality, value-driven cardiovascular care.
Dr. Mathew is originally from the Chicagoland area, is married and has two children.
