About Dr. Christopher Mehta,
Heart Valve Surgeon
Hello! My name is Dr. Christopher Mehta and I am a cardiac surgeon having graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University (Medical College of Virginia) School of Medicine in 2013. Northwestern Memorial Hospital performs the highest number of heart valve procedures in Illinois and is currently ranked among the top 10 cardiology and heart surgery programs in the nation, according to U.S. News and World Report.

I believe my greatest strength is that I understand that trying to find treatment for a heart valve condition can be a difficult and overwhelming process. That’s why every day I strive to help patients understand their best treatment options with compassion, empathy, and integrity.
I believe providing excellent care in heart surgery goes beyond technical surgical skill. Heart surgery is a team effort -- it requires the collaboration of a professional, dedicated team in order to provide the best patient care we can offer.
3 Patient Reviews for
"I found out that I needed to have open heart surgery with a valve replacement and repair of an aortic aneurysm after a routine followup. Dr. Mehta was able to meet with me the next day and perform surgery the following week.
Dr. Mehta was incredibly detailed in going through options for surgery as well as which operation would likely have the best results for me. He was very knowledgeable and able to set both mine and my wife’s worried minds at ease.
Surgery was uncomplicated. I spent a night in ICU and 3 nights on the floor. 7 weeks out from surgery, I’m back to normal and feel extremely fortunate to have had such an amazing team of doctors and nurses at Northwestern Medicine to help me through all of this.
I would highly recommend Dr. Mehta and his team at Northwestern. I know I had many options for this surgery, but I believe coming out with such a great result was due to Dr. Mehta being a part of it."

"In September 2020, I had my 2nd aortic valve replacement surgery to replace my prosthetic valve that was implanted 12 years ago. Dr. Mehta was extremely professional, very accessible and thoroughly communicated with me pre-surgery and post-op. He explained all my options, the processes and expectations following the surgery in a clear, easy to understand manner. It has now been 13 weeks since surgery and my recovery has gone extremely well. I highly recommend Dr. Mehta. "

He must have really known what he was doing and was probably the best surgeon I've had or seen (and I've had a lot of doctors for hip procedures). I can't imagine going through this without his advice and expertise."
