Why choose the Vascular Surgery Program at Rush?
Because the vascular surgery program at Rush University Medical Center has a comprehensive team of highly experienced clinical specialists, including board-certified physicians and talented healthcare professionals. They are a dedicated team of surgeons who use every tool available to provide you effective and individualized vascular treatments that are supported by cutting-edge technology and a comprehensive research and medical center.

What technology do you use and what are the benefits?
We have advanced technology available to treat your vascular disorders, including The SilverHawk Plaque Excision System for PAD and VNUS closure for varicose veins. We always look to use the least invasive treatment possible. There are many benefits to using advanced technology in treating vascular conditions, including less pain, less risk, a shorter hospital stay and in some cases no hospital stay, and an earlier return to work and activity.

How do you choose which treatment is best for me?
Because we are vascular surgeons we have a large range of treatment options and tools available. Based on your condition and your overall health we will design a treatment program that will be the most effective for your vascular condition and enable you to get back to you normal life.

Who is on my vascular surgery team?
Vascular surgeons at Rush include Chad E. Jacobs, MD, and Walter J. McCarthy III, MD, MS.

What happens when I come for an appointment?
From the first time you meet with your doctor and your vascular surgery team they work to see what treatments are going to best fit your life and your vascular condition and they also consistently review your progress. Your team is there to answer your questions and go over how your vascular treatments work.

Where is vascular surgery located?
We are located at the corner of Paulina and Harrison Streets, just south of the Eisenhower expressway. Our address is 1725 W. Harrison Street and parking is available in the main parking garage, which is located across the street from us, traveling the opposite direction of the expressway.

How do I get there?
Rush University Medical Center is conveniently located just south of the Eisenhower expressway so it is easy to get here by car.
