NYU Langone’s Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease brings together expert physicians and scientists who are dedicated to preventing and reversing heart disease, the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.
We offer a comprehensive risk assessment for cardiovascular disease, and treatment plans aimed at helping you maintain a healthy heart. Our goal is to 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.
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, blood clotting disorders, and physical activity.
We care for people who are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease. This includes people with psoriasis and rheumatic conditions such as psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus, who receive care through our Cardio-Rheumatology Program. We also provide treatment for people who have already experienced a heart attack, stroke, heart or vascular surgery, or angioplasty.
