Heart Failure and Transplantation
At the University of Chicago Medicine, internationally recognized physicians and surgeons provide aggressive medical and surgical care for even the most complex cases of heart failure. Our physicians are often among the first in the nation to use new medicines, procedures and devices to aid failing hearts. We're also a leader in heart transplantation, and have many years of experience implanting ventricular assist devices as a bridge to transplant or as an alternative to transplant.
Your care will be coordinated by a highly skilled team of heart failure specialists -- people devoted to the special medical and emotional needs of patients with heart failure. This dedication does make a difference. All of our patients have access to specially trained heart failure nurses 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
