Pediatric Cardiovascular Services at Weill Cornell is comprised of the combined programs of Pediatric Cardiology and Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery. In addition, these divisions represent the Weill Cornell campus of the composite Weill Cornell-Columbia Pediatric Cardiovascular Center, one of the largest and most famous of its type in the world. The program has specialists for every facet of congenital heart disease in infants, children, adolescents and adults.
Diagnostic imaging, such as echocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), cardiac computed tomography (CT), and cardiac catheterization is available at Weill Cornell, as are interventional cardiology procedures such as balloon angioplasty, coiling, stenting of blood vessels and device closure of heart defects. Many of these procedures may prevent the need for later heart surgery. However, when necessary, cardiovascular surgery by an outstanding team of heart surgeons is available for the correction of heart defects. For more information about our heart surgery team, visit the Pediatric Cardiac Surgery website.
Leaders in Cardiovascular Research
Members of the faculty of Pediatric Cardiovascular Services at Weill Cornell have a distinct interest in cardiovascular basic science research. Dr. David Lyden, Stavros S. Niarchos Associate Professor in Pediatric Cardiology, is a leader in this area. Also Associate Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology and Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Dr. Lyden and his team are engaged in studies evaluating vasculogenesis - or the development of blood vessels - and its application to congenital heart disease represent the foundations of these investigations. Our faculty are also contributors to several national multi-center studies evaluating various aspects of congenital heart disease in children and adults.
