Joseph Mahgerefteh, MD, is a specialist in the Division of Pediatric Cardiology in the Jack and Lucy Clark Department of Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Director of Preventive Cardiology at the Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Heart Center. He is an expert in managing genetic dyslipidemias, which occur when lipids are elevated in the blood—such as the so-called “bad” cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein or LDL) or triglycerides. In addition, he is an expert in using quantitative echocardiography to assess the effect of chronic problems such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity on pediatric cardiovascular disease. His previous experience as an epidemiologist in the health department in Iran and a collaborator with the World Health Organization has informed his design of projects in preventive cardiology addressing childhood chronic diseases.
Dr. Mahgerefteh received his medical degree from Isfahan University of Medical Sciences in Isfahan, Iran. He performed his residency in pediatrics at Children's Hospital at Maimonides Medical Center and his pediatric cardiology fellowship at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore - Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Most recently, he built one of the largest pediatric preventive cardiology programs in the United States at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore. Dr. Mahgerefteh previously held a leadership role in the Pediatric Healthy Heart Program at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore where he was dedicated to the care of children with hyperlipidemia, hypertension and other traditional cardiovascular risk factors and comorbidities.
