Cardiology

We have doctors throughout New York City and Long Island, as well as in Westchester County and Florida. To make an appointment, please call one of our cardiologists.

Our cardiologists at NYU Langone Heart have one mission: to support our patients so they maintain their heart health and to provide solutions for improving it where needed. To achieve this, our team of heart specialists works together to prevent, detect, and treat all conditions that affect the cardiovascular system, which consists of the heart and blood vessels.

Recognition

U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” ranks NYU Langone among the top 5 hospitals in the country for cardiology and heart surgery.

As one of the top-ranked programs in the country, we provide the highest-quality and most-advanced cardiovascular care. We partner with our patients to promote cardiovascular health through early detection and prevention.

In addition, we provide highly tailored therapy, including rehabilitation, for patients with established cardiovascular disease, whether this impacts the heart’s electrical system, the blood vessels, or the structure and function of the heart and heart valves.

Heart Disease Prevention

An important part of our holistic approach to care is prevention. We provide screening to help you identify risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure and lipid disorders such as high cholesterol. We help you control these risk factors through lifestyle changes such as nutrition and exercise or with medication. Specialized preventive care for people at high risk is available through the Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease. In addition, patients who have cancer can receive cardiovascular preventive care through our Cardio-Oncology Program.

Heart Rhythm Care

Conditions of the electrical system are known as hearth rhythm disorders. These include atrial fibrillation (A-fib) and atrial flutter, supraventricular arrhythmias, and ventricular arrhythmias. Our cardiologists assess your symptoms and use cardiac testing and imaging to diagnose your condition. We create a personalized care plan and refer you to experts in electrophysiology at the Heart Rhythm Center as needed for further testing and treatment.

Treatment for Cardiovascular Conditions

Our cardiologists provide care for cardiovascular conditions that include coronary artery disease, lower extremity artery disease and carotid artery disease. As part of creating your personalized care plan, we collaborate with specialists at the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory who provide minimally invasive testing and treatment of these conditions. We help to manage your condition with medications and lifestyle changes, improving your overall cardiac health.

Heart Function and Heart Valve Care

If our cardiologists detect structural changes in the heart such as muscle weakening, also known as cardiomyopathy, we can provide treatments to improve your quality of life. We may also refer you to our Heart Failure Advanced Care Center or Heart Transplant Program for more-intensive treatment options, including novel medications, implantable devices, or heart transplantation.

We can also accurately diagnose abnormalities in the heart valves such as stenosis (narrowing) or regurgitation (leakage) and monitor your heart health. We can recommend seeking treatment at our Heart Valve Center if surgery or a transcatheter procedure is necessary.
