At the University of Chicago Medicine, we offer advanced surgical solutions to treat atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valve disease and many other heart conditions. From reconstructing failing hearts to performing robotic and minimally invasive cardiac surgery, our surgeons are helping patients with heart disease return to active, full lives. 

At the core of our heart surgery program is a team of internationally known cardiac surgeons who are leaders in the field and are often among the first to perform groundbreaking procedures.

We take the most challenging cases, but taking on the most challenging cases and getting great results with the challenging cases has allowed us to build an entire infrastructure and a system that gives even better care to the not-so-challenging cases. So, we've used that technology and the techniques developed for the challenging cases and we bring them down to every case. And so we have fantastic results across the board.
