We have locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
At NYU Langone’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, one of the highest-volume catheterization laboratories in the county, our interventional cardiologists have a reputation for caring for people with the most complex forms of cardiovascular disease.
We have the surgical skill, as well as the advanced tools and technology, to treat complex higher-risk indicated patients (CHIP) and those who have chronic total occlusion (CTO) with arteries that have been completely blocked for three months or longer. In many cases, these people have been turned away from other catheterization laboratories. At NYU Langone, our interventional cardiologists can provide treatments that are unavailable at many smaller laboratories.
Our expertise extends to all forms of catheter-based techniques used to diagnose, treat, and prevent coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, and stroke, including coronary angioplasty and stenting. Our interventional cardiologists perform more than 7,000 coronary cardiac catheterization procedures each year.
We provide emergency treatment to people experiencing heart attack or stroke, and specialize in preventing amputation in people with critical limb ischemia, a condition which blocks blood flow to the legs. Our doctors have the skill to open more than one artery during the same procedure, and can place a catheter-based left ventricular assistance device in people experiencing heart failure.
Most of the procedures performed for our patients can be done on an outpatient basis, without a hospital stay.
Cardiac catheterization appointments can be scheduled at the following locations:

We also care for patients who are experiencing heart attacks or other cardiac events at the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Emergency Services, Emergency Department at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, and NYU Langone Health—Cobble Hill.
Doctors at the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory help people with a wide variety of cardiovascular conditions achieve the very best recovery outcome with the lowest risk.View All Doctors
