NYU Langone’s Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease brings together expert physicians and scientists who are dedicated to helping people prevent and reverse their risk of heart disease, the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.
We use a comprehensive risk assessment for cardiovascular disease to create a personalized treatment plan to help you maintain a healthy heart. We collaborate with your primary care doctor to address and lower any of your cardiovascular risk factors, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, with the appropriate medical treatments and lifestyle changes. We also offer nutrition and fitness consultations with our registered dietitian and exercise physiologist, who can help you adopt lifestyle changes to improve your overall health.
We also offer the Heart Healthy Nutrition Program, led by a registered dietitian, and Exercise and Cardiovascular Wellness Programs, which are supervised by a cardiologist and have services geared to people who are new to exercise as well as established athletes. Through these programs, we help you adopt lifestyle changes to improve your overall health.
U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” ranks NYU Langone among the top 5 hospitals in the country for cardiology and heart surgery.
We care for people who are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease and provide treatment for people who have already experienced a heart attack, stroke, or heart or vascular surgery, or received a stent in the legs, heart, or neck arteries.
