Cardiothoracic Surgery

  • A Leader in Heart-Saving Surgery

     CT Surgery

    We use the latest technology to treat our patients with minimally invasive procedures and faster healing. We offer robotic heart surgery and are pioneering the use of the Impella CP, the world's smallest heart pump. Einstein was the first in the region - and one of five centers in the country - to use this technology.
