Cardiac Surgery

Our cardiac surgery program is nationally recognized for its reputation using leading-edge technology and surgical approaches to treat challenging heart conditions. Our renowned surgeons offer the full range of options, often working in a multidisciplinary fashion, including:

  • Atrial fibrillation surgery
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery, including TECAB
  • Heart failure surgery
  • Heart transplantation
  • Ventricular assist devices
  • Ventricular reconstruction

The University of Chicago Medicine is nationally recognized for excellence in many of these subspecialty arenas, including heart failure care and transplantation. In their quest to advance the quality of cardiac care, our cardiac surgeons are actively investigating the safety and efficacy of new techniques and devices that could help patients with complex heart conditions lead long and fulfilling lives.

In addition to offering a comprehensive menu of treatment options, our cardiac surgeons also employ the latest minimally invasive techniques, whenever possible. In fact, our program is home to one of the busiest robotic cardiac surgery programs in the nation.

Above all, our cardiac surgeons are committed to working with their colleagues inside and outside the institution to improve the lives of patients.
