Learn About Our Research

At our Transcatheter Heart Valve Program, our surgeons have performed more transcatheter heart valve procedures than any other program in the country, and are leaders in transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and MitraClip® for mitral valve repair.

Cardiac surgeons at our Heart Valve Center also performed the world’s first completely trans-septal percutaneous mitral valve replacement.

Surgeons at our Center for Complex Aortic Disease are sought out for their expertise in treating the most complex forms of aortic aneurysm, including aortic root, aortic arch, and thoracoabdominal aneurysms.

Our cardiac surgeons were also at the forefront of many innovations in coronary bypass graft surgery, minimally invasive cardiac surgery, and congenital heart disease treatment. Surgeons at our Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Program pioneered advancements in septal myectomy and mitral valve repair that are now the gold standard in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy treatment.

For patients who require heart transplant, we are one of the top heart transplant centers in the country, with the fastest transplant rate in the Northeast and highest one-year survival rate in New York State.
