Our expert team provides compassionate, customized treatment for people with heart failure.
At NYU Langone’s Heart Failure Advanced Care Center, our staff is specially trained to evaluate and treat even the most complex forms of heart failure, and we have access to advanced monitoring tools that are not yet available at many other centers. We also offer heart transplantation at our Transplant Institute.
The Heart Failure Advanced Care Center is widely recognized for our commitment to our patients and success in providing the highest quality healthcare. Our program has received the Get With The Guidelines® Heart Failure Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association.
The Heart Failure Advanced Care Center’s mission is to empower you to take control of your health by educating you and your family about how to best manage your heart condition. When you come to us for care, we evaluate not only your heart, but also your overall health for a more holistic approach to treatment.
Our team of doctors and nurses are specialists in advanced heart failure. We know that many people with heart failure often have other conditions such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and anemia, so we work with you and your other physicians to address your full medical history and unique health goals to develop a personalized treatment plan.
Your healthcare team works with you to put that treatment plan into action. A specially trained nurse practitioner shows you successful strategies to monitor heart failure, and teaches you lifestyle modifications to maximize your heart health. A clinical pharmacist explains how each of your medications works and its possible side effects, and reviews your medication list to identify potential drug interactions.
If you may be eligible for heart transplantation, your care team guides you through the evaluation process and helps coordinate your care with our heart transplant specialists.
High-Quality Clinical Care
The Heart Failure Advanced Care Center has access to the most up-to-date diagnostic tools. We can monitor some patients with complex heart conditions with a wireless device called the CardioMEMS, which measures the pressure in the pulmonary artery, the main blood vessel that carries blood from the heart to the lungs. This implantable device allows your physicians to track your heart function and your response to medication, and make adjustments if necessary. This can help patients feel better and avoid hospitalizations.
We also offer a full scope of medical and surgical life-sustaining therapies, such as heart-transplant evaluations, and we have specialty certification to implant ventricular assist devices.
Our experts specialize in diagnosing advanced heart failure and collaborate to develop personalized treatment plans for every patient.View All Doctors
