Heart Failure Service

Heart failure is a syndrome which develops when a person's heart is too weak to properly pump blood throughout the body. When the two upper chambers (atria) and two lower chambers (ventricles) are unable to pump enough blood to meet the body's needs, congestive heart failure may develop. At The Mount Sinai Hospital, our cardiologists and cardiac surgeons specialize in the treatment and management of patients living with mild, moderate, and advanced congestive heart failure. We develop personalized treatment plans for each patient, ranging from lifestyle modifications and medications to surgical intervention when necessary. Additionally, left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) and heart transplants are available for patients with advanced heart failure. Read more
