At NYU Langone Heart, our interventional cardiologists provide minimally invasive, catheter-based techniques to prevent, diagnose, and treat cardiovascular disease, including coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, and heart valve disease. We also provide emergency treatment for people experiencing life-threatening events, such as heart attack.
Innovation in Heart Disease Care
Our doctors lead research into next-generation stent technology and improving our understanding and management of heart disease.Learn About Our Cardiology Research
Our researchers continually work to improve how we treat heart diseases, helping us provide the most innovative diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization techniques in our laboratory.
During cardiac catheterization, our specialists guide a long, hollow tube called a catheter through a vessel in the groin or the arm to reach the vessels of the heart. The catheter allows interventional cardiologists to use special tools to look for blocked arteries through a coronary angiogram or other diagnostic tests, and when necessary, perform procedures such as stenting to restore healthy blood flow.
Your doctor will discuss with you how to prepare for cardiac catheterization and what to expect during and after the procedure.
Based on the diagnosis, your doctor may recommend specific treatment or interventional procedures such as stenting to open blockages. As soon as a diagnosis is made, our doctors explain treatment options to you and begin the interventional procedure.
We provide cardiac catheterization at the following laboratory locations:
We care for patients who are experiencing heart attacks or other cardiac events at the emergency departments at Tisch Hospital, NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, and NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island and the NYU Langone Health—Cobble Hill Emergency Department at the Joseph S. and Diane H. Steinberg Ambulatory Care Center.
Routine and scheduled catheterizations are coordinated by your referring physician, who helps you make an appointment.
Doctors at the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory help people with a wide variety of cardiovascular conditions achieve the very best recovery outcome with the lowest risk.
Our surgeons are pioneers in the use of transcatheter-based, minimally invasive techniques to treat mitral valve disease and aortic valve disease.
We provide advanced treatment for all types of heart rhythm disorders, including atrial fibrillation.
Our caring team helps determine the best treatment for your unique heart condition.
Our doctors are among the most experienced in the country and have treated thousands of people with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
We are accredited by the Adult Congenital Heart Association as an Adult Congenital Heart Disease Comprehensive Care Center.
