The RUSH Approach to Interventional Cardiology Services
Interventional cardiologists at RUSH are leaders and trusted authorities on the latest technology and research, which means you have access to the most groundbreaking treatments in the field for narrowed blood vessels, structural heart disease and other heart and vascular issues.
We recognize the importance of an accurate diagnosis, as it allows us to further personalize your treatment plan.
Our team uses the latest nonsurgical methods, which involve a tiny incision in the groin, arm or neck. This means safer procedures and faster recoveries for you.
RUSH Excellence in Interventional Cardiology
- Personalized treatment plans: If you have structural or valve-related conditions, interventional cardiology experts personally evaluate you and design individualized treatment plans — offering the newest nonsurgical valve replacement and hybrid surgical procedures.
- Minimally invasive procedures: We treat valvular heart disease through minimally invasive catheter-based procedures, which means faster recoveries, less rehab and less pain for you. One of these procedures is TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement), which involves replacing the aortic valve without needing open-heart surgery. We also offer MitraClip procedures for those with severe leakage in their mitral valve. Given the minimally invasive nature, these are ideal treatment options for those not eligible for traditional surgery.
- All the experts working together: Since many of these procedures take place in the interventional platform at RUSH University Medical Center and RUSH Copley Medical Center, specialists from all necessary areas work together toward the most accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.
