Our Heart & Vascular Specialties

We’ve brought together top experts in cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery and vascular surgery on two floors, making it easier for doctors to coordinate care for patients with complex conditions to see more than one specialist on the same day. Our cardiovascular specialties include:

Our experienced cardiologists offer the latest therapies to identify, treat and prevent a full range of heart conditions, from congestive heart failure (CHF), atrial fibrillation (AFib), heart attacks, heart valve conditions, congenital heart abnormalities and more.

Diagnostic Services – We offer the most advanced diagnostic testing available – including EKG, ECHO, heart rhythm monitoring, stress tests (exercise, nuclear, stress echo), CT imaging, diagnostic cardiac catheterization in our state-of-the art cath lab, and more.

Treatments & Procedures – Comprehensive clinical and interventional cardiology treatment options, including medical management of congestive heart failure, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)/stenting, valvuloplasty to widen aortic valve, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for severe symptomatic aortic stenosis, percutaneous mitral clip for mitral valve regurgitation, PFO/ASD closure (congenital heart conditions), ablations for AFib/VT/AVT, device implantation to reduce risk of stroke in AFib patients, pacemaker/implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) for arrhythmias.

Preventive Services – including Women’s Heart Health and community outreach screening services.

Maimonides is nationally recognized for excellence in heart valve and heart bypass surgery.
