Ziyad Hijazi, Center for Congenital and Structural Heart Disease at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago

The Center for Congenital and Structural Heart Disease at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, brings together world-renowned experts in the fields of pediatric and adult congenital and structural heart diseases. The center offers advanced medical and surgical care, and advances medicine through cutting-edge research in repairing heart diseases through minimally invasive techniques.

Center for Congenital and Structural Heart Disease at Rush

Faculty members of the Center for Congenital and Structural Heart Diseases are leaders in clinical care, teaching and research. The center provides the full spectrum of care in all subspecialty areas of pediatric cardiology and structural heart diseases in adults.

The interventional cardiology team, led by Ziyad Hijazi, MD, MPH, has an international reputation for innovation and research in the field. Hijazi and his interventional team have set the standards of care in this field for the past several years. They continually explore, through research and academic endeavors, new and better ways to help patients with congenital and structural heart disease through nonsurgical procedures.

The Rush Center for Congenital and Structural Heart Diseases also leads through its educational efforts. Rush University Medical Center houses the editorial office of Pediatric Cardiology; the leading journal in the field, edited by Ra-id Abdulla, MD, who directs the educational efforts of the center.

Services Provided

The center's services include all diagnosis and treatment for the full spectrum of patients with congenital and structural heart disease, including neonates, children and adults. The center provides state-of-the-art care for congenital heart defects in children and adults, including minimally invasive procedures for the following:

  • Atrial septal defects
  • Ventricular septal defects
  • Patent ductus arteriosus
  • Coarctation of the aorta
  • Heart and pulmonary valve replacements

The center also treats adults suffering from structural conditions, such as leaky or narrowing heart valves. And, because many of the repairs can be done by threading catheters through blood vessels, many patients don't require major surgery, or even stitches.

Services include the following:
