Weill Cornell Medicine

Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian have sustained a superior track record of surgical excellence in cardiac surgery. The New York State Department of Health Cardiac Surgery report tracks outcomes for cardiac surgery for hospitals and individual surgeons.

Results are publicly reported. The Weill Cornell Medicine Cardiothoracic Surgery Department remains one of the few programs in New York with both observed and risk-adjusted mortality consistently below the state mean for coronary artery bypass, valve surgery and combined valve/bypass surgery. Our surgical outcomes have routinely surpassed the regional and national benchmark statistics for mortality and major complications. We have exceptional experience caring for patients of all ages with complex health conditions.

Superior Outcomes for Heart Valve Therapy

We have well-established collaborative efforts with cardiology in areas such as percutaneous valve replacement and repair, congestive heart failure and mechanical assist devices, emergent extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and in the management of patients with advanced arrhythmias. Our excellent outcomes can also be attributed to our collaboration with the Department of Anesthesia and critical care. Our endovascular aortic program has been a successful collaborative effort with the Department of Radiology for nearly 20 years.
