Coronary Artery Disease and Chest Pain
The University of Chicago Medicine has assembled one of the nation's finest teams of heart experts who specialize in diagnosing and treating all aspects of coronary artery disease. From treatments to alleviate chest pain to rescuing the heart after heart attack, our teams of specialists are always available to offer the finest care.
University of Chicago cardiologists and heart surgeons have special expertise in treating people with complex disease or co-existing medical problems, such as diabetes. We often take on the most challenging cases--those otherwise considered untreatable.
Our expert cardiac surgeons are highly skilled in minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery -- methods to perform the surgery through smaller incisions rather than cracking open the chest. Benefits of this approach include a faster recovery, less risk for complications, and less pain compared to traditional open-chest bypass surgery.
