While the many therapy options for cardiovascular disease may seem complex, we believe the first step to treatment is simple: We listen to our patients. From your first visit at the Lauder Family Cardiovascular Center of Mount Sinai Heart, our physicians will take the time to talk with you and answer your questions in order to make a thorough and accurate diagnosis. From there, we offer a full range of treatment options, from simple prevention practices to sophisticated procedures for advanced heart failure.
Because of our Center’s home within the Mount Sinai Health System, our patients also have access to world-class doctors in all other disciplines, enabling us to coordinate the best treatment plan personalized to your needs.
Our Center’s key outpatient services include the following areas:
We recognize the best treatment for heart disease is preventing it from developing in the first place. That’s why our team believes in a proactive approach to keeping you healthy by establishing the right diet, managing cholesterol and blood pressure levels, maintaining optimal weight, and treating other factors such as diabetes and certain genetic high-risk conditions.
Our team of cardiologists and cardiac surgeons is highly skilled in treating the full range of conditions affecting the heart, including arrhythmias, coronary artery disease, and hypertension (high blood pressure). From initial diagnosis through long-term disease management, our specialists understand the importance of developing a personal relationship with each patient to ensure the best possible care.
Heart Failure and Transplantation
A diagnosis of heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, means your heart muscle has become too weak to pump blood throughout your body. For this serious condition, our cardiologists and cardiac surgeons have advanced training, years of experience with patients, and access to leading-edge treatments including those available through clinical trials. Whether you are experiencing mild heart failure or a more complex case such as multivalvular heart disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or congenital abnormalities, our team will work with you to determine if lifestyle changes, medication, a device, or possibly transplantation is the best treatment path.
Vascular Medicine and Surgery
While cardiology care focuses on problems with the heart, vascular medicine focuses on treating vein, artery, and lymphatic diseases throughout the entire body. Through the use of medications, minimally-invasive procedures, and other therapies, our Center’s vascular medicine and surgery specialists are expert in treating a wide range of conditions, including aneurysms, diseases of the aorta and carotid artery, venous disease, and stroke.
