The Heart & Vascular Institute at Maimonides Medical Center has been a premiere facility for cardiac care for many years. In fact, the department earned perfect scores from US News & World Report for heart failure and heart attack care earlier this year. This distinction is well deserved given the Heart & Vascular Institute’s long list of accolades.
Expert cardiologists at the Heart & Vascular Institute are especially skilled in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a minimally invasive procedure that addresses narrow coronary arteries. It can relieve chest pain and reduce other symptoms of atherosclerosis.
Consistently Better Outcomes for Over a Decade
Patients at Maimonides Heart & Vascular Institute experience better PCI outcomes than the statewide average, and we’re the only hospital in New York State to achieve that for 11 years in a row (2006–2018).
PCI isn’t always the best treatment for patients who have atherosclerosis. Our highly skilled surgeons can also treat this complex, life-threatening condition with coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The STS Adult Cardiac Surgery Database recognizes our exceptional skills and outcomes for open heart CABG surgery with the highest score possible—three stars for statistically better CABG outcomes than expected. Such results were made possible by the leadership of Robert Frankel, MD, Vice Chair, Cardiology and Director of Interventional Cardiology and Paul Saunders, MD, board-certified cardiothoracic surgeon and Co-Director of the Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) Program.
Maimonides Heart & Vascular Institute physicians are consistently among the best providers for cardiac care throughout Brooklyn and the rest of New York State. “Whether patients need routine monitoring, minimally invasive procedures like PCI, or open heart CABG surgery, we’re proud to be a preferred destination for patients and providers alike,” Dr. Frankel said.
