Metropolitan New York's First & Largest Adult Congenital Heart Program

With the success of cardiac surgery in childhood, the number of young adults with congenital heart defects represents a unique and growing population and more than 30 different forms of congenital heart disease. Because these adults present a unique challenge for the cardiology community, the American Heart Association recently recognized Adult Congenital Heart Disease as a subspecialty of cardiology.

Our adult congenital heart program, the first and largest of its kind in the Tri-State area, includes a team of board-certified pediatric and adult cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, and intensive care experts specifically trained in adult congenital heart disease. They assist in managing young and older adults who present with primary or post-repair congenital heart disease.

Our physicians have expertise in echocardiography, interventional cardiac catheterization, interventional electrophysiology, pulmonary hypertension, complex congenital heart surgery, and cardiac transplantation.
