Cardiothoracic Surgery

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital's outstanding Divisions of Cardiothoracic Surgery are a major referral center for cardiothoracic patients around the country and around the world. The Divisions have been consistently at the forefront of clinical research and the development of innovative treatments in numerous areas of cardiothoracic care.

Cardiothoracic surgeons at both NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center specialize in the treatment of patients with acquired and congenital heart disease, and conduct ground-breaking research and clinical work in procedures such as coronary artery bypass, valve repair and replacement, as well as heart, lung and heart-lung transplantation. Our surgeons have extensive experience with surgical repair of aortic dissection and aneurysms of the entire aorta, including the ascending aorta, aortic arch, descending aorta, and thoracoabdominal aorta. NewYork-Presbyterian is also participating in a series of FDA clinical trials of robotically assisted heart surgery. Such techniques allow surgeons to perform highly complex surgeries in a minimally invasive manner, leading to better treatments of heart disease.

The Heart Transplant Program at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia, one of the first in the nation, has consistently been among the most active programs in the United States. Established in 1977, NewYork-Presbyterian has performed more heart transplants — more than 1,600 — than any other hospital in the country. A new state-of-the-art outpatient facility provides comprehensive pre- and post-operative outpatient care for heart and other transplant patients.

As one of the nation's preeminent cardiac surgery programs, we offer our young patients a team-based, specialized approach that provides the best care for their hearts.

The LeBuhn Center for Chest Disease and Respiratory Failure at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia is a highly specialized state-of-the-art facility for the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary diseases, providing enhanced care for the approximately 5,000 pulmonary patients treated here each year. Surgeons in the Division of Thoracic Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell and the Hyperhidrosis Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia provide novel treatments for hyperhidrosis, a poorly understood condition marked by excessive spontaneous sweating.

Many of the cardiothoracic surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell are also members of the Howard Gilman Institute for Valvular Heart Diseases, recognized for innovation and expertise in heart valve disease, one of the most common causes of heart failure.
