The Geriatric Cardiology Program was established in order to address the needs of older adults with cardiovascular disease. Older adults who have heart disease, usually those over age 70, often have other medical illnesses as well, which makes treatment more challenging. For example, effective medications for heart disease may have an increased risk of side effects in older adults or may interact with other medications.


U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” ranks NYU Langone among the top 10 hospitals in the country for geriatrics.

Our doctors incorporate principles of geriatric medicine into our routine cardiology practice, including a comprehensive geriatric assessment, evaluation of any drug interactions, and consideration of an individual’s physical capabilities.

Our goals are to provide high-quality outpatient and inpatient cardiac care, and to pursue innovative clinical studies that can help us improve the heart health of older adults.
