NYU Langone’s Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease brings together expert physicians and scientists who are dedicated to helping people prevent and reverse their risk of heart disease, the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.
We use a comprehensive risk assessment for cardiovascular disease to create a personalized treatment plan to help you maintain a healthy heart. We collaborate with your primary care doctor to address and lower any of your cardiovascular risk factors, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, with the appropriate medical treatments and lifestyle changes. We also offer nutrition and fitness consultations with our registered dietitian and exercise physiologist, who can help you adopt lifestyle changes to improve your overall health.
U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” ranks NYU Langone one of the top hospitals in the country for cardiology and heart surgery.
Our doctors specialize in many areas of cardiovascular care, including hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease in women, diabetes and prediabetes, and blood clotting disorders.
We care for people who are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease and provide treatment for people who have already experienced a heart attack, stroke, or heart or vascular surgery, or received a stent in the legs, heart, or neck arteries.

To evaluate your health, we offer basic and advanced blood testing for cholesterol concentration and particles as well as testing for diabetes and other more advanced markers of cardiovascular risk. We also provide imaging, including CT scans of the heart, and at-home testing such as monitors that record your blood pressure.
We partner with NYU Langone experts in neurology, rheumatology, dermatology, oncology, obstetrics, and ophthalmology to treat conditions that can impact your heart disease risk. Doctors from our Cardio-Rheumatology Program provide care for people who are at increased risk of heart disease due to psoriasis and other rheumatologic conditions. We also partner with NYU Langone’s interventional cardiologists and electrophysiologists to stop the progression of heart disease and prevent heart attacks and strokes.
