Institute for Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery

The Institute for Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery

The Institute for Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery provides comprehensive prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of all types of heart disease. NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital houses state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical facilities and the cardiac (heart) surgery team at the NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital-Cornell Heart Center comes from the world-renowned Weill Cornell Medical Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

The Institute brings together a panel of specialists and a range of services in all areas related to heart disease. These cardiac services, which range from screening and diagnostic procedures to emergency and ongoing treatment for heart attacks and chronic heart disease, are provided at the Hospital's specialized laboratories and clinical units, on both an inpatient and outpatient basis.

The Institute's staff of physicians includes specialists in all areas of cardiology (heart health), interventional cardiology, electrophysiology (using electrical technology to measure and treat heart problems), and cardiac (heart) surgery.

All of this allows patients to come to one place for all heart-related health needs. NYP Brooklyn Methodist Hospital treats heart attacks and heart conditions with expert specialists and advanced treatments but we go beyond that to connect patients to all forms of prevention and care to keep the heart healthy.
