Dr. Mahir Elder

| Detroit Cardiologist

As an interventional cardiologist at the Detroit Medical Center Cardiovascular Institute, Dr. Mahir Elder specializes in minimally invasive procedures. With an extensive medical background, combined with a specialty in Cardiology and seven national board certifications, Dr. Elder remains the highest volume operator of peripheral arterial disease and amputation prevention in Michigan.

Each patient will be treated with the most advanced technology with a focus on prevention and longevity.

Dr. Elder holds multiple board certifications in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, endovascular disease, vascularinterpretation and nuclear cardiology. He specializes in peripheral arterial disease, intracoronary and carotid stenting, vein disease and complex cardiovascular disease. He has developed numerous clinical trials and research on endovascular procedures and complex vascular cases.

Dr. Elder also serves an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine both at Wayne State University’s School of Medicine and at Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine.

Beyond his numerous certifications, awards and titles, Dr. Elder is best known for bridging the gap in the disparity of care in the community and for being available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Across the state and the region, other physicians know that they can send him patients with or without insurance — resulting in thousands of uninsured patients receiving the care they need.

Dr. Elder’s knowledge and expertise in cardiovascular disease has garnered him many invitations to speak at international and national conferences. He has also been recognized with multiple awards from various institutions, including being named Wayne State University School of Medicine’s Teacher of the Year and Mentor of the Year, Crain’s Healthcare HeroHour Magazine’s Top Doctor, and has earned a People’s Choice Award for Compassionate Doctor Recognition.
