Adult Congenital Heart Surgery
As more patients survive open heart repairs as children, they often require additional procedures such as valve surgeries or Fontan conversions in adulthood. In fact, it is expected that by the year 2020, more adults than children will need open heart procedures to correct congenital heart defects.
Under the direction of Marlon S. Rosenbaum, MD at NewYork-Presbyterian’s Schneeweiss Adult Congenital Heart Center and Harsimran Singh, MD at the Cornell Center for Adult Congenital Heart Disease at Weill Cornell Medicine, we offer personalized, lifelong care for adult patients with congenital heart disease.
NewYork-Presbyterian provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient clinical services and diagnostics including cardiac catheterization and surgical repair, with particular expertise in minimally invasive treatment strategies and hybrid procedures. Our world-renowned surgeons perform sometimes lengthy and complex adult surgeries. Interventional cardiologists offer non-surgical and minimally invasive solutions for repair of congenital cardiac defects. Patients are cared for by a team with specialized expertise in adult congenital heart disease including clinical consultants in adult & pediatric cardiology, heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, high-risk obstetrics, neurology, and pulmonary medicine. Specialists in congenital electrophysiology with state-of-the-art arrhythmia mapping systems offer potential curative therapies for life-threatening arrhythmias.
