With today’s advanced treatment options, I can give my patients an opportunity for improved health.

Having a family member with a chronic cardiac condition and his early job as an orderly on a cardiac unit, Mark Dixon, DO says making the decision to specialize in cardiology was a logical one. “I graduated from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine,” Dr. Dixon shared, “and after my Internal Medicine residency at St. Louis University, I pursued a fellowship in cardiology at the Chicago Osteopathic Medical Center.” During his fellowship, the field of electrophysiology was in its infancy and cardiac ablations and the placement of defibrillators were just beginning to be performed. “This all fascinated me, because I knew these were procedures that would give cardiac patients a much improved quality of life.” Dr. Dixon completed a fellowship in Electrophysiology at the Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

Recently, Dr. Dixon and his colleague Sandeep Sehgal, MD, became the only physicians in Northern Indiana to offer the implantable WATCHMAN™ device to patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. “The WATCHMAN™ is a first-on-its-kind, FDA approved alternative to patients taking blood thinners to reduce their chance of stroke,” commented Dr. Dixon. “It’s a real game changer.”
