Patient Services

  • Preventive Cardiology

    Our cardiologists specialize in the prevention and treatment of heart disease. Cardiac services include physical exams, blood tests, risk assessments, assistance quitting smoking and nutrition counseling.

  • Non-Invasive Testing

    A variety of advanced diagnostic tests are available at our hospitals and physician offices to aid in the detection of heart disease. Available tests include stress tests, echocardiograms, EKGs, holter monitors and cardiac MRI.

  • Cardiac Catheterization

    Cardiac catheterizations can be used to detect blockages in the coronary arteries. Our interventional cardiologists can often use angioplasty or stents to clear blockages in the arteries.

  • Electrophysiology

    This cardiac services specialty focuses on heart rhythm abnormalities, electrical activity and electrical pathways in the heart. Treatments can include implantable cardiac defibrillators, pacemakers, ablations and lead extractions.

  • Cardiac Surgery

    Our surgeons are experts in the latest surgical procedures including cardiac bypass, valve repair and replacement, and minimally invasive techniques - including robotic surgery and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Our program has been recognized for success rates and superior outcomes.

  • Thoracic Surgery

    We specialize in minimally invasive and innovative surgical approaches to treat lung diseases, tumors, cancers, esophageal problems and gastroesophageal reflux.

  • Cardiac Rehabilitation

    We offer a medically supervised program to improve the health of people with heart disease. Programs are customized to the needs of each patient and often include monitored exercise and nutritional counseling.

  • Structural Heart Disease

    Patients with abnormal structure or function of the heart can be seen by our cardiac specialists who offer treatment and repair, often using minimally invasive techniques.

  • Congenital Heart Disease

    Our team of pediatric and adult cardiologists work together to provide continuous care for patients born with heart defects. Our program focuses on the long term treatment of patients with congenital heart disease.

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center of New York, is the only children's hospital on Long Island that offers comprehensive pediatric cardiology care from pregnancy through infancy, childhood, adolescence and beyond.

  • Center for Emergency Medical Services

    Center for Emergency Medical Services (CEMS) is the largest hospital-based ambulance service in the New York Metropolitan area and is one of the largest in the United States.

  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

    Patients with severe aortic stenosis can avail of a treatment where the TAVR physician guides a catheter to the heart with an artificial valve attached. The valve expands and is anchored inside the aorta and blood flow is restored.

  • Minimally Invasive Surgery

    Minimally invasive cardiac techniques allow North Shore-LIJ doctors to treat heart disease using significantly smaller incisions compared to traditional procedures.

  • Peripheral Artery Disease

    Peripheral artery disease (PAD) - also referred to as peripheral vascular disease (PVD) - is a common but serious condition in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs. Specially trained cardiologists who focus on the managing the peripheral vascular system see patients with vascular disease.

  • Valvular Disease

    The North Shore-LIJ Health System performs thousands of cardiac surgery procedures each year, with case- loads comparable to nationally recognized healthcare organizations. Our experienced cardiac program has been consistently recognized by the New York State Department of Health.
