At the center, each patient meets with a team of specialists — including an interventional cardiologist and a cardiac surgeon — at the same time. Drawing on their many years of experience, these specialists develop an individualized treatment plan and present it to the patient on the same day.
The heart valve team at Rush is committed to advancing care for their patients. They have been leaders in clinical trials to bring innovative treatments to their patients, including transaortic valve replacement (TAVR), MitraClip and the CoreValve. They continue to participate in research aimed at helping people with heart valve disease lead longer, fuller lives.
