What Sets Us Apart

Coronary artery disease is a type of heart disease that can lead to a heart attack. It occurs when a waxy substance called plaque builds up in the arteries that supply blood to the heart. At NYU Langone, cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, and cardiothoracic surgeons collaborate to determine the best treatment for coronary artery disease.

Specialists at our NYU Langone heart programs perform time-tested and innovative procedures designed to improve blood flow and reduce the risk of a heart attack. Experts at the Joan and Joel Smilow Cardiac Prevention and Rehabilitation Center at the renowned Rusk Rehabilitation offer post-surgery support for people with cardiovascular conditions. 

Our doctors lead national and international clinical trials in which promising new therapies are tested. Their efforts have led to advances in the treatment of coronary artery disease.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment for coronary artery disease typically includes medication, and may also include minimally invasive procedures or surgery to improve blood flow and prevent complications, such as heart attack.
