The team at Advocate Christ's Heart and Vascular Institute is nationally recognized. Physicians at Christ Medical Center include the first team in the United States to implant a HeartMate II® ventricular assist device (VAD) for destination therapy and the first team in Illinois to perform robotically assisted mitral-valve repair surgery. Our physicians routinely publish in prestigious medical journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine, and help to write national guidelines for heart care.
But we are not just talking about physicians. Our nurses are leaders in their fields, regularly speaking to other medical centers and organizations about establishing similar programs.
