Aortic Valve Stenosis Program
Treatment of aortic valve stenosis requires a dedicated, multi-disciplinary approach. Lurie Children's Aortic Valve Stenosis Program includes cardiologists with expertise in aortic valve stenosis, cardiac imaging, and interventional cardiology, neonatologists with expertise in lung disease, and cardiac surgeons. Each patient with aortic valve stenosis is different and we are dedicated to working with families to provide the best, individualized treatment to all children with aortic valve stenosis.
The Lurie Children's Difference
As your child grows, our Heart Center team also understands that your child needs more than a healthy heart to thrive. Our Neurodevelopmental Program provides close monitoring of our complex patients from the neonatal period through school age.
For families traveling from a distance, we have easy access to a nearby Ronald McDonald House, built in 2012, with 70 private guest rooms. We are within the Northwestern Memorial Hospital complex and for our patients who need transitioning to adult care, we have an integrated Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program with Northwestern Medicine.
We understand that children with aortic valve stenosis and their families face difficulties, but our Heart Center team will partner with you to provide expert, innovative, compassionate, and individualized care for your child, allowing them to meet these challenges throughout the years they are followed at Lurie Children’s.
The three Lurie Children’s Heart Center attending surgeons are American Board of Thoracic Surgery-certified Thoracic and Congenital Cardiac Surgeons. They have expertise in all aspects of surgery for aortic valve defects.
