About Me

I’m Stilianos Efstratiadis, MD, FACC, FSCAI and I joined Phelps Health as an interventional cardiologist in December 2023. I see adult patients (ages 18 and up) at the Phelps Health Heart and Vascular Center. I have 20-plus years of experience and have completed over 10,000 heart-related procedures.

I perform catheter-based procedures, including coronary and peripheral angiograms and stents. Coronary angiograms look at the blood vessels of the heart, while peripheral angiograms focus on blood vessels outside of the heart, typically in the legs, arms, pelvis and neck. Along these same lines, coronary stents are used to open clogged blood vessels supplying blood to the heart, whereas peripheral stents open and support clogged blood vessels outside of the heart.

I also am well versed in inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement and removal. (IVC filters are designed to prevent blood clots from going up into the lungs.) Patent foramen ovale (PFO) closures are another procedure that I perform. PFO closures are permanent implants to close a hole in the heart wall. I also help patients with heart disease, high blood pressure and other heart-related conditions.

I grew up in Athens, Greece, and my grandparents were an important part of my early years. My grandmother and grandfather both died from heart disease while in their 60s. Because of this, I decided to specialize in cardiology, to help others with similar conditions.

As a cardiologist, my patients always come first, and my responsibilities are to meet their needs, assess their issues and make the right diagnosis. I have a history of treating complex problems and am often called upon for second opinions.

I have lived in America for over 20 years, and Rolla is now home. In my free time, I enjoy going to church and classical (opera) music. I also serve as an assistant professor of cardiology at Washington University in St. Louis. Networking with fellow cardiologists is a passion of mine, as I strive to continually improve. In addition to English, I also speak Greek and Italian.

Phelps Health shares my values for patient care, and I feel privileged to bring my experience to the heart of Missouri.
