At the Center for Congenital and Structural Heart Diseases at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, pediatric cardiologists treat a wide range of heart problems in the catheterization laboratory, thus preventing the need for surgical intervention. Our pediatric interventional cardiologists are physicians who specialize in catheterization treatment procedures and are internationally renowned leaders in this field. All available techniques in the field of interventional pediatric cardiology are available at our center. Many of these procedures were invented, modified or tested by our cardiologists. Currently, our team is examining and fine tuning a number of new procedures, such as inserting new valves without surgery or occluding cardiac defects in hard to reach areas.
