NYU Langone’s cardiac surgeons are renowned for their ability to perform complex procedures and for pioneering new and better ways to treat conditions that affect the heart, including aortic valve disease and mitral valve disease.
Advances in Adult Cardiac Surgery
Our faculty are leaders in cardiothoracic innovation, including advances in heart device technology and minimally invasive surgical techniques.Learn About Our Cardiothoracic Research
Our cardiac surgeons offer you the most advanced options, including the latest transcatheter, minimally invasive, robotic, and open surgical techniques. Our breadth and depth of expertise ensures that you receive the treatment that is best suited to your individual diagnosis, and that allows you to go home as early as the next day—and return to your daily activities as safely and quickly as possible.
We are also dedicated to making sure that every patient has a pleasant and convenient experience.
Cardiac surgeons from our Heart Valve Center performed the first-ever minimally invasive mitral valve repair in the United States, the world’s first robotic mitral valve repair, and world’s first completely trans-septal percutaneous mitral valve replacement. Our surgeons have worked to refine minimally invasive and robotic techniques for aortic and mitral valve replacement, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR), and have performed more transcatheter valve procedures than any other surgeons in the United States.
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.
Cardiac surgery procedures we perform include the following:
Cardiac surgery takes place at Tisch Hospital, Kimmel Pavilion, and NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. Each person is cared for by a team of experts with advanced training in treating people with cardiac diseases. We strive to keep you and your family fully informed and actively involved throughout your treatment and recovery.
We care for adults who were born with congenital heart defects.
Our experienced team of cardiac and vascular surgeons provide treatment for the most challenging types of aortic aneurysm.
Treatment is provided for people with inherited and acquired clotting disorders.
We offer medical and surgical life-sustaining therapies.
We provide individualized care to patients with arrhythmia.
Our doctors use transcatheter techniques, robotic, and minimally invasive techniques to repair and replace heart valves.
We treat people who have genetic forms of heart disease.
Robotic techniques are used in valve replacement and bypass surgeries.
