Faculty, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

Dr. Kalscheur specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias (electrical abnormalities of the heart). 

He earned his medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and completed his internship, residency and a chief residency at the University of Chicago Medical Center. He then completed his cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology fellowships at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics. 

His practice also includes minimally-invasive catheter procedures for the treatment of atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias as well as implantation and management of cardiac devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators.
