Cardiothoracic Surgery

Cardio-Thoracic SurgeryThe Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery was created in 1996, the year the borough of Queens received its long-awaited approval to provide cardiac surgical services at NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens. Since that time, the program has blossomed into a busy service boasting superb outcomes and the ability to carry out the most sophisticated of procedures. As part of the Heart & Vascular Center, the cardiothoracic surgery program works in cooperation with a large staff of clinical and interventional cardiologists in order to provide care that is coordinated and comprehensive.
