About Heart Failure Care at Mount Sinai
Mount Sinai uses a multidisciplinary team approach to treat the entire patient experiencing heart failure with personalized treatment and health management plans. Each heart failure patient receives the latest evidence-based care as they transition from their initial diagnosis to treatment and long-term follow-up.
Our comprehensive, integrated team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, researchers, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, and clinical care coordinators work together to offer each patient the full-spectrum of heart failure clinical services. Our specialists have advanced training, years of clinical experience, and access to innovative treatments.
Experts with Complex Cases
Mount Sinai's heart failure experts are experienced with treating the most complex patient cases, including those with advanced heart failure, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, multivalvular heart disease and congenital abnormalities. In fact, The Mount Sinai Hospital was the first in the New York area to discharge a patient awaiting a heart transplant with Total Artificial Heart technology. Also, each year Mount Sinai cardiac surgeons perform dozens of heart transplants for our most critically ill heart failure patients.
In addition, Mount Sinai is home to one of the largest left ventricular assist device (LVAD) programs for advanced heart failure patients. Our cardiothoracic surgeons implant more than 50 LVADs each year to help support the failing hearts of patients as a bridge-to-transplant therapy (BTT) or a destination therapy (DT) for permanent support.
