The Stony Brook University Heart Institute offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary program for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Our staff includes 50 full-time and community-based, board-certified cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons, as well as 350 specially trained anesthesiologists, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, operating room technicians, perfusionists, and other support staff. Their expertise allows us to offer state-of-the-art interventional and surgical capabilities in 24-hour cardiac catheterization labs and surgical suites.
The Heart Institute is located within Long Island's only university-based medical center. Not only do we offer the latest advances in medicine, but our physician-scientists are also actively enhancing knowledge of the heart and blood vessels through basic biomedical studies and clinical research.
This is a promising time in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. New diagnostic and imaging technologies yield unprecedented views of the heart. Minimally invasive surgeries offer patients faster recoveries. Procedures are constantly evolving to treat arrhythmias and other complex conditions. Here at the Heart Institute, we implement these lifesaving strategies with effectiveness, safety, and compassion for our patients and their families.
