Cardiothoracic Surgery


Cardiothoracic surgery, to bypass damaged arteries, is sometimes the best option for preventing a heart attack. The New York Methodist-Cornell Heart Center is staffed by physicians from the prestigious Weill Cornell Medical Center of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. They are leaders in the field of cardiothoracic surgery but more importantly, they deliver quality care to our patients.

Each patient is cared for through the coordinated efforts of a team of experienced cardiothoracic surgeons and cardiologists as well as by anesthesiologists who specialize in cardiothoracic surgery and nurses to care for patients who have undergone cardiac surgery.


For an appointment with a cardiothoracic surgeon, call 718.780.7700.
