The Rush Approach to Heart Surgery

Whether you're managing coronary heart disease, heart failure or arrhythmia or recovering from a heart attack, we offer comprehensive, multispecialty care and surgery options for adults with all kinds of cardiovascular disease.

We specialize in providing accurate diagnosis and the following personalized cardiovascular disease treatments:

  • Aortic aneurysm surgery
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Minimally invasive bypass surgery
  • Minimally invasive valve replacement and repair, including TAVR and MitraClip
  • Preventive cardiology services
  • Procedures to treat heart rhythm disorders
  • Ventricular assist device (VAD) implantation

When possible, our heart surgeons use the latest nonsurgical methods, which involve a tiny incision in the groin, arm or neck. This means safer procedures and faster recoveries.

Rush Excellence in Heart Surgery

  • Access to the latest clinical trials: You have early access to many of the latest innovations, from minimally invasive procedures to stem cell therapy and new medications, through our ongoing commitment to advancing cardiovascular care through research.
  • Nationally ranked for cardiac bypass surgery: The Society of Thoracic Surgeons has designated thoracic surgery at Rush a three-star program — the society’s highest rating — for coronary bypass graft surgery.
  • Cardiac rehabilitation: Rush also offers an outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program at Rush Oak Park Hospital and Rush Copley Medical Center. This program helps people with cardiovascular disease lead healthier, more active lives, and helps those who have recently undergone a heart procedure return to their everyday routines.
  • Prevention and screening: Rush Copley Medical Center offers a menu of heart screening options, $99 and under, that can help put your mind at ease. These diagnostic tests are often recommended by cardiologists to get a better perspective on heart health but don't require a prescription or a doctor's referral. Call (630) 692-5150 to schedule an appointment.

By helping people with their cardiac and peripheral arterial disease, we’re able to improve their functionality. I have many people come and tell me that they can take care of their grandkids, whereas they couldn’t keep up with them before. Or they can take walks with their spouse where they couldn’t go that far before. Whenever we hear stories of how people’s lives have changed because of what we’ve done, it is really gratifying. It really makes me get up the next day and say, 'I want to do the same thing for the next person, so they can experience those wonderful joys in life.'
