"Mount Sinai Heart: Where You’re the Heart of the Matter”

The Full Spectrum of Heart Care

We offer a broad range of cardiology specialties to meet your personal health care needs. From the most common to the rarest conditions, you will find that our cardiology experts have knowledge, experience, and compassion. Our specialties include:

  • General Cardiology: Many of our heart patients start their journey here, finding help managing their cholesterol or high blood pressure. Preventive measures can often be achieved through lifestyle changes and/or medication. If you have difficulty breathing or feel heaviness in your chest, we offer diagnostics to pinpoint the issue. A general cardiologist can draw upon sub-specialists, as needed.
  • Preventive Cardiology: People at risk for cardiovascular disease benefit from a preventive cardiology program. These offer a comprehensive risk assessment and development of treatment plans to maintain a healthy heart and promote wellness and longevity.
  • Interventional Cardiology: Many heart issues can be diagnosed and treated through catheter-based procedures. Some of these minimally invasive procedures include measuring pressures in the heart and lungs, along with balloon angioplasty and stenting, which can now be performed at Mount Sinai Queens. 
  • Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Management: When a person’s heart doesn’t beat regularly, tests of the heart’s electrical activity can tell us why. The results determine whether the arrhythmia can be treated through medication, ablation, a pacemaker or other device, or surgery.
  • Structural Intervention and Valve Replacement: Enormous strides have been made in heart valve surgery and replacement recently. Both our structural heart specialists (interventional cardiologists) and our cardiovascular surgeons at Mount Sinai Queens are experienced in the latest procedures for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), mitral valve repair and replacement, tricuspid valve intervention, closing holes in the heart, and more. These conditions can be fully evaluated locally at Mount Sinai Queens and performed at Mount Sinai’s hospitals in Manhattan. 
  • Cardiac Surgery: Our cardiac surgeons are experts in open heart bypass surgery, including minimally invasive bypass surgery, valve repair and replacement, and surgery on the aorta. 
  • Endovascular (peripheral artery disease) Treatment: Mount Sinai Queens is here to serve our patients who have peripheral arterial disease. This can include asymptomatic disease management (lifestyle changes, exercise therapy, and medical therapy) or peripheral intervention—for example, angioplasty with medicated balloons or stents placed in arteries, when a patient does not improve with non-invasive therapy. Peripheral intervention uses minimally invasive procedures to remove blockages and repair aneurysms in the arteries. We also treat venous disease in the legs, including varicose veins. 
  • Heart Failure and Transplantation: Congestive heart failure is when your heart becomes too weak or stiff to pump blood throughout your body. Patients may experience mild, moderate, or severe symptoms (shortness of breath while walking or lying down) and the course of treatment will vary accordingly. We treat heart failure with lifestyle education, medication, implantable devices, or sometimes transplantation.

Conditions We Treat

We have extensive experience with acute and chronic cardiac conditions and procedures, including:

The Latest Diagnostic, Testing, and Treatment Options

With access to high-tech imaging and exceptional cardiologists, we can treat the majority of our cardiac patients locally in Queens. We offer a full range of cardiology services, including diagnostics and testing services, ranging from the most general to the most highly specialized. General diagnostics such as echocardiograms, nuclear stress testing, and vascular testing are performed and the results evaluated by our highly trained experts. You also have access to the most advanced non-invasive technologies such as coronary CT angiography (including the most advanced technology of CT-FFR), three-dimensional echo, and TEE (transesophageal echo). Our state-of-the-art treatment options include cardiac stents, implantable pacemakers and defibrillators, implantable cardio rhythm monitoring and management devices, remote monitoring services, and peripheral interventions.

Access to an Extensive Network

As part of the prestigious Mount Sinai Health System, we can seamlessly refer or transport you to any of our other hospitals, should the need arise. For instance, if you require a percutaneous implantable valve (i.e. TAVR) or an invasive cardiac surgical procedure, we can refer you to a local specialist and have the procedure performed in Manhattan. Since we are part of one health care system, information exchange is seamless across our offices and hospitals.
