How we're making a difference in heart health

The heart is one of the most important organs in the human body. Our physician-scientists are committed to keeping it healthy, so patients can lead active, full lives.

Home to the nation’s highest performing heart transplant program and one of the most comprehensive robotic heart surgery programs in the country, UChicago Medicine’s Heart & Vascular Center offers life-saving treatments not available at other hospitals and gives hope to patients with the most complex cardiac conditions.

Our team partners together to

Uncover the underlying causes of heart disease
Find new ways to treat and manage heart rhythm disorders
Offer innovative technologies to help manage heart failure
Enhance detection for heart transplant rejection

Shaping the future of cardiovascular care

Innovation rarely happens in a silo. It takes a combination of resources and cross-boundary imagination to generate ideas that will change practice or improve the patient experience. Our Heart and Vascular Center is designed to make that happen
