Expert Prevention and Treatment of Heart Attacks
Coronary artery disease occurs when fatty deposits build up along the inside of the arteries supplying blood to your heart (atherosclerosis) and can lead to a heart attack, which can cause the death of heart tissue. If you or someone you care about has coronary artery disease, it's best to be treated by healthcare professionals who are specialists in this area. Our expert cardiologists, surgeons, and other heart specialists collaborate to treat each patient promptly and effectively.
Multidisciplinary Care for Heart Disease
NewYork-Presbyterian has more top cardiologists and cardiac surgeons than any other hospital in the country. Our cardiologists, heart surgeons, interventional cardiologists, and critical care experts work together to customize your care, with the goal of minimizing or preventing heart damage and improving your quality of life. We treat some of the highest-risk and most complex cases of coronary artery disease, including patients in their 80s and 90s, and those with very few treatment options.
Our Approach to Care
A Customized Plan that's Right for You
