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.
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.
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 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 shortest waitlist times and a 100 percent one-year survival rate. Our waitlist mortality is the lowest in New York State, and the third lowest in the country.
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.
Our doctors use transcatheter techniques, robotic, and minimally invasive techniques to repair and replace heart valves.
We use minimally invasive and robotic surgical techniques to treat mitral valve disease.
We use nonsurgical techniques to repair and replace the aortic and mitral valve.
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.
We offer medical and surgical life-sustaining therapies.
We provide individualized care to patients with arrhythmia.
We treat people who have genetic forms of heart disease.
Robotic techniques are used in valve replacement and bypass surgeries.
Our program is led by pioneers in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy treatment.
