Director's Description

The Adult Congenital Heart Disease team at Lurie Children’s is a group of specialists designed to care for the growing population of adolescents and adults who were born with congenital heart defects. We provide care to adolescents and adults across the spectrum of congenital heart defects from simple to highly complex congenital heart disease. Our providers received specialty training in caring for adults with congenital heart disease, and are well prepared to provide life-long follow-up care for these patients. In addition to our downtown location, our ACHD certified providers have satellite locations in Lincoln Park, Northbrook, Grayslake, and New Lenox.
