Because the treatment of congenital heart disease in children has been so successful, there is a growing need to continue to treat these children as they reach adulthood (over 18) and beyond.

A Multidisciplinary Approach
The Adult Congenital Heart Clinic is different than most other clinics in and around the Chicago area. A multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses and social workers collaborate to create a customized treatment plan for the patient. If the patient was referred by another physician, that doctor will be kept up-to-date on care and treatment needs. A referral is not required.
The treatment team strives to provide superior outcomes using a clinical approach that may include comprehensive disease management, state-of-the-art technology, research and education. All diagnostic tests are available on-site.
