He earned his medical degree and completed his internship at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and his cardiovascular medicine residency at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, OK.
He was the first cardiologist to implant a biventricular pacemaker in Arkansas. He also led in the establishment of Northwest Arkansas' first Congestive Heart Failure Center, and the area's first Accredited Chest Pain Center at Northwest Medical Center - Springdale.
Dr. Michael Green served as a lead investigator for the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative (NCSI), with Northwest Medical Center (Springdale and Bentonville) among the first 50 hospitals nationwide participating. This multicenter study has helped to identify the best treatment for people who experience cardiogenic shock following a heart attack (AMI-CS). It is designed to assess the feasibility of whether outcomes in cardiogenic shock can be improved by using standardized best practices including inserting a special heart pump to protect the patient during a percutaneous coronary intervention.

Our physicians and providers are proud to be affiliated with Northwest Health, the largest health system in Northwest Arkansas. With five hospitals, Northwest Health has three accredited Chest Pain Centers - in Bentonville, Siloam Springs and Springdale.
Northwest Medical Center - Springdale was the first hospital in Northwest Arkansas to provide open-heart surgery and achieve Cycle IV Chest Pain Center Accreditation with Primary PCI through ACC Accreditation Services (American College of Cardiology). Northwest Medical Center – Bentonville also earned the same accreditation, and both hospitals maintain this accreditation today (now cycle V) to show Northwest Health's continued commitment to providing high quality care for your heart when you need it most.
Northwest Medical Center - Springdale was also among the first 50 hospitals nationwide chosen to participate in a new study to identify the best treatment for people who experience cardiogenic shock following a heart attack (also called acute myocardial infarction - cardiogenic shock, or AMI-CS). Called the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative (NCSI), this multicenter study assessed the feasibility of whether outcomes in cardiogenic shock can be improved by using standardized best practices such as inserting a special heart pump to protect patients during percutaneous coronary interventions.
From prevention to diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation, numerous services are available throughout our five-hospital network.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking special precautions to keep our offices and other care environments safe for every patient.
