Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory

We have locations throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island.

Ranked Among Best Hospitals
U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” ranks NYU Langone among the top 5 hospitals in the country for cardiology and heart surgery.
Interventional Cardiology Experts
Each year, our interventional cardiologists perform 20,000 cardiac catheterization procedures.
Advanced Cardiac Care
Our doctors excel in treating complex blockages in the arteries of the heart, legs, kidneys, and neck, including chronic total occlusion.

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.

Cardiologists Dr. Craig Thompson and Dr. Michael Attubato

Our interventional cardiologists provide treatment for the most complex, high-risk blockages.

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.

Our Locations

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.
