Clinical Services at Rush Jai Raman, MD

Jai Raman, MD, FRACS, PhD, is director of the Section of Adult Cardiac Surgery and surgical director, Advanced Heart Failure, Heart Transplant and Mechanical Circulatory Support Program at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. He is a professor in the Department of Surgery.

An internationally recognized leader in cardiac surgery, Raman has pioneered numerous new surgical procedures, focusing primarily on heart transplantation and the treatment of heart failure. These innovations include techniques to stop the heart from enlarging in heart failure patients; a method of restoring the shape and size of scarred heart chambers; the development of new surgical instruments for the minimally invasive removal of tissue that causes abnormal heart rhythm; and new techniques for repairing the heart's mitral and tricuspid valves. He has the largest experience in the Chicago region with minimally invasive cardiac surgery, including aortic surgery, coronary artery bypass grafting, and procedures to treat arrhythmias and valve problems.

Raman comes to Rush from the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he had been since 2002, serving for the past three years as professor of surgery and cardiovascular-thoracic surgery and director of adult cardiac surgery. He previously held faculty positions at the University of Melbourne, Australia and was a consulting surgeon at numerous hospitals in Melbourne.

Raman received a medical degree from St. John’s Medical College in Bangalore, India; a master's degree in medicine with a thesis in microsurgery from University of Sydney, Australia; and a doctoral degree from the University of Melbourne for his study of ventricular containment in heart failure patients. He completed a rotating residency in cardiovascular-thoracic surgery and fellowships in general and thoracic surgery and pediatric cardiac surgery in Australia.

Raman has been the principal investigator for several multicenter trials. He has also published more than 100 journal articles and holds patents for several new medical devices.
