Cardiothoracic Surgery
Karl Krieger

I think that each patient should be treated like a member of your family, a mother or a father. I operate at New York Presbyterian Hospital because I have an opportunity to provide outstanding, state of the art care to each patient. In the last 25 years, we have completed over 30,000 cardiac operations with one of the lowest mortality rates in the country. We have an outstanding cardiac program because Cornell has attracted the best cardiologists, surgeons, and nursing staff in the country --- I am honored to have a leadership role on such a team.

Karl Krieger is the Philip Geier Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Vice Chairman of the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center.

After graduating from Amherst College, Dr. Krieger pursued his medical school education, as well as his surgical internship and residency, at Johns Hopkins University. He completed his general and cardiovascular surgical training at New York University Medical Center and then joined the faculty of The New York University School of Medicine in 1981. Dr. Krieger was soon appointed to be the Director of the Cardiovascular Research Laboratory.

In 1985, Dr. Krieger joined the faculty at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, where he now serves as Vice Chairman of the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery. His responsibilities include teaching medical students, residents and cardiothoracic fellows, as well as directing a large clinical research program. He is the Director of the The William Acquavella Heart Valve Center which focuses on minimally invasive valve surgery (TAVI). He is also the Director of The Cardiac Service Line at Cornell. He is the author and co-author of over 100 medical articles and abstracts and recently wrote and co-edited the textbook, "Blood Conservation in Cardiac Surgery." Dr. Krieger's primary interest is in maintaining a high volume, outstanding clinical care program.
