Rush Center for Adult Structural Heart Disease

Physicians at the Rush Structural Heart Disease Center offer the full range of treatment options for all types of valve disease in adults, including mitral valve prolapse, pulmonary stenosis and aortic valve stenosis.

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.

Advancing Heart Valve Therapy With New Technology

The heart valve team at the Rush Structural Heart Disease Center is committed to providing coordinated, comprehensive care for their patients. We have been leaders in clinical trials to bring innovative and minimally invasive treatments to our patients, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and artificial heart valves such as the Edwards SAPIEN transcatheter valve.

We continue to participate in clinical research aimed at helping people with heart valve disease lead longer, fuller lives.
