Pediatric heart specialists at Rush provide personalized, compassionate care for congenital (present at birth) and acquired heart disorders. These doctors treat young patients of all ages, from fetuses and newborns to children, adolescents, teenagers and adults.
Whenever possible, the specialists at Rush perform minimally invasive procedures to treat conditions such as patent foramen ovale (PFO), ventricular septal defect (VSD), aortic valve stenosis, pulmonary valve stenosis, coarctation of the aorta, atrial septal defects and patent ductus arteriosus.
