A father who can once again play soccer with his kids, thanks to a bloodless heart transplant. A swimmer still going strong in her 70s after advanced treatment for cardiac arrhythmia. A retired police and fire commissioner whose heart failure was reversed. These are just a few of the remarkable stories of lives saved by the world-renowned physicians and cardiothoracic surgeons at Montefiore Einstein Center for Heart and Vascular Care.
Montefiore Einstein’s Center for Heart and Vascular care is ranked in the top 1% of all hospitals in the nation for cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery and achieved a “high performing” ranking in heart failure by U.S. News & World Report. Montefiore Einstein also has one of the best heart transplant survival rates in New York and among the highest in the nation. It is a leader in the use of ventricular assist devices (VADs) for the treatment of heart failure and for patients requiring complex, high-risk procedures, such as repairs to heart valves and aortic aneurysms. We continue to pioneer treatments for heart rhythm disorders and minimally invasive cardiac procedures.
