A network of experts for world-class cardiac care
With state-of-the-art facilities and renowned cardiac experts using the most advanced surgical techniques, it's no wonder we've been consistently recognized for extraordinary cardiac care. If your heart condition requires surgery, our team is here.

Why choose us?

As national leaders in heart, lung and vascular care, our doctors were the first to develop and perform many groundbreaking procedures. We care for patients with conditions that range from the simple to the highly complex, and our surgeons are experts in treating coronary artery disease, structural heart disease and complex disease of the aorta. And our success rates are among the highest in New York for cardiac surgery. 

This outstanding care is offered at a state-of-the-art facility. Our 1,780-square-foot cardiovascular and thoracic surgery suite features the East Coast’s first advanced robotic system, as well as three new cardiac operating rooms, a pretreatment area and a reception space.

Our hybrid operating room allows patients to be treated with a combination of minimally invasive approaches, offering the long-term benefits of surgery and stenting. It also enables surgeons to perform two procedures at the same time rather than on different days. This allows less stress on the body, reduced blood loss, smaller incisions, a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery time for patients.

The hybrid operating room enhances cardiac capabilities by allowing clinicians to perform complex cases that may require a combination of procedures from multiple specialists, all in a single room. It is used for imaging, open-heart surgeries and minimally invasive procedures such as angioplasty, angiography, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and endovascular procedures, including thoracic aneurysm stenting and transcatheter mitral valve procedures (TMVR), where surgeons replace or repair mitral valves with a catheter.

It's a combination of renowned expertise, advanced technology and a commitment to exceptional patient care that makes Lenox Hill a premier destination for every heart in need.
