Stephen L. Kopecky, M.D.
Dr. Kopecky is a cardiologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. After his training at Mayo Medical School, he started in Mayo's Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory doing interventional procedures and treating myocardial infarctions in the Coronary Care Unit. After treating heart attacks for 18 years, he realized the best way to treat coronary artery disease is to prevent the disease before it has a chance to cause clinical symptoms. Dr. Kopecky currently works in Mayo Clinic's Cardiovascular Health Clinic, which is the prevention clinic in the Division of Cardiovascular Diseases. He has written numerous articles for peer-reviewed journals and has received multiple "Teacher of the Year" awards from Mayo's Division of Cardiovascular Diseases and the Department of Internal Medicine. His research interests include the role of inflammation in cardiovascular disease and the role of lifestyle, including diet, exercise, and proper nutrition, in the prevention of cardiovascular disease
