Why choose us?
At Lenox Hill Heart & Lung, we offer a wide range of services, evidence-based treatments and research to ensure that patients receive comprehensive cardiac care. Here's what you can expect from us:
Help with the prevention of problems before they happen: Even if you feel healthy, it's possible that you have—or are at risk for—a heart problem. We offer what's called preventive cardiology, which focuses on early detection, treatment and prevention of heart disease. We can detect life-threatening conditions before they threaten your life. Our doctors are researching 4D imaging technology to better see how blood flows around your heart in real time—it's the closest we've come to seeing the inside of your heart from the outside. This technology helps assess and combat congenital heart defects, congestive heart failure, pulmonary hypertension and other complex, potentially fatal issues.
Electrophysiology treatment innovations: The advanced electrophysiology laboratories use the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies to improve patient care and outcomes. We are among the first to pioneer or offer novel procedures, including a pacemaker that can be safely used during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and developing cryoablation, a minimally invasive procedure to treat arrhythmias.
State-of-the-art catherization labs and techniques: Lenox Heart & Lung has brand-new, state-of-the-art hybrid operating rooms that combine the imaging capabilities of a traditional cardiac catheterization laboratory with the functionality of a cardiac operating room. This allows interventional cardiologists and surgeons to collaborate on the most complex cardiac cases and exemplifies our commitment to the latest advances in cardiac care.
Patient-centered care: Patients are cared for as individuals with specific needs, and our clinical staff has the expertise and resources to customize treatments. A team of healthcare professionals, with a variety of expertise in multiple disciplines, devotes time to learn about patients to deliver specialized care. Families are welcomed in this process, and are invited to participate in treatment.
Research & clinical trials: We are dedicated to leading the way in heart care through medical research and by providing access to exclusive clinical trials and groundbreaking treatments. We're proud to be recognized for high quality care by state health organizations—because caring for our patients is at the heart of everything we do.
