Matthew Kalscheur, MD


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. 

Dr. Kalscheur’s clinical practice includes minimally-invasive catheter procedures for the treatment of atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia and other arrhythmias, as well as implantation and management of cardiac devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators including leadless pacemakers and subcutaneous ICDs.
