With heart surgery, small advances in surgical technique can make a world of difference for the patient. At the University of Chicago Medicine, our heart surgeons are constantly refining their approach to surgery--taking steps to improve every aspect of the treatment experience for our patients. From reconstructing failing hearts to offering minimally invasive and robotic cardiac surgery, our surgeons are helping people with heart disease return to active, full lives.

University of Chicago cardiac surgeons are internationally known for their expertise, and have developed some of the most advanced surgical solutions to treat heart failure, heart valve disease, and many other heart conditions.
