October 25, 2012

MIAMI, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — The Mount Sinai Heart Institute is Florida’s premier cardiovascular program, offering patients the best heart attack survival rate in the state and the best cardiac surgical outcomes among Florida hospitals performing the most cases.*

Mount Sinai’s affiliation with New York’s prestigious Columbia University is the only Ivy League partnership of its kind in South Florida and recognizes the outstanding, results-driven cardiac care delivered by its physicians, many of whom hold professorships at Columbia University.

The Most Experience
Mount Sinai’s doctors have the most extensive experience in heart valve surgery of any hospital in Florida, and they are among the most experienced in minimally invasive valve surgery in the United States. In fact, more valve surgeries are performed at the Mount Sinai Heart Institute than any other hospital in Florida. Mount Sinai’s minimally invasive valve repair and replacement techniques are proven to result in less physical trauma and better long-term outcomes than more traditional heart surgical procedures.

Mount Sinai’s exceptional team of physicians also includes several leading, world-renowned specialists in a variety of advanced cardiovascular treatment techniques, including:

  • Transradial percutaneous coronary intervention to open obstructed coronary arteries
  • Multi-vessel coronary interventions
  • Innovative procedures for common and rare heart rhythm disorders

Convenient Second Opinions
Patients frequently turn to the Mount Sinai Heart Institute as a source for second opinions regarding the treatment of all facets of cardiovascular disease. A second opinion can be particularly useful to patients with conditions that are difficult to treat or manage. The specialists and sub-specialists at Mount Sinai offer a thorough diagnosis and an analysis of each patient’s best possible treatment options based on their collective knowledge, expertise, experience and the depth of Mount Sinai’s medical and technological capabilities.
