The Advanced Heart Failure Center at Maimonides offers a wide-array of options in the treatment of heart failure.

Applying a multidisciplinary team approach, our board-certified Advanced Heart Failure cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and social workers work together to ensure that our patients receive the best and most comprehensive care before, during, and after treatment.

Our heart failure specialists treat the full spectrum of heart failure causes, including congestive heart failure, left-sided and right-sided heart failure, and systolic and diastolic heart failure. Our doctors are dedicated to educating patients about all available heart failure treatments, including heart surgery.

Maimonides board-certified Advanced Heart Failure cardiologists can help optimize your medical management and evaluate your need for various device therapies to improve your heart function and  quality of life.

Maimonides is the only hospital in Brooklyn with an LVAD Program, offering the most recent mechanical support devices to patients with end-stage heart failure. Maimonides is also one of the leading hospitals in New York City in terms of both LVAD procedure volume and success rate.

The Maimonides ECMO Program has also saved countless lives by implementing a heart-lung machine to mimic the natural function of the heart and lungs, giving the patient temporary respiratory and cardiac support as they undergo treatment to the affected organ. As the only hospital in Brooklyn administering ECMO–TO-GO, Maimonides works with other area hospitals by sending the ECMO team to treat critically ill patients on site and then conduct a transfer back to Maimonides.
