Programs & Specialties

No matter how tough you are, heart conditions are frightening. It’s nice to know you’ll be cared for by a team of cardiologists, diagnosticians, surgeons, and nurses who will treat your case on an individual basis, caring for you as if you are family. Below is a list of conditions treated by the Einstein Heart and Vascular Department.

Adult Congenital Heart Conditions

Congenital heart disease stems from an abnormality present at birth. While some conditions require immediate surgery on a newborn, it is possible that some patients don’t know about their conditions until well into adulthood. Adult congenital heart conditions include:

  • Atrial septal defect
  • Bicuspid aortic valve disease
  • Anomalous pulmonary venous return
  • Ventricular septal defect
  • Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy

Aortic Disease

As the largest artery in your body, the aorta is a critical part of your circulatory system and can cause serious heart problems when weakened or torn. Our team treats aortic diseases, including:

  • Aortic aneurysm
  • Aortic dissection

Arterial Disease

Our team of board-certified vascular surgeons is highly experienced in the most advanced treatments for vascular diseases, restoring blood flow to help you live a long and healthy life. Vascular diseases we treat include:

  • Aortic artery disease
  • Cerebrovascular disease
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Renal and mesenteric occlusive disease
  • Popliteal artery aneurysm

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) is characterized by rapid, abnormal movements of the heart’s upper two chambers that throw off the heart’s normal synchronization with the lower chambers. Einstein's heart surgery and electrophysiology departments work closely to find the most appropriate treatment.

  • Irregular heartbeat

Cardiac Tumors

Working closely with our cardiology, radiology and oncology teams, Einstein heart surgery specialists deliver a personalized, comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating cardiac tumors. The types of tumors that the heart surgery team treats include:

  • Myxomas
  • Sarcomas
  • Fibroelastoma

Clinical Cardiology

Our clinical cardiology team works to improve the lives of patients suffering from all forms of cardiovascular disease. Conditions that our cardiology team treats include:

  • Adult congenital heart disease
  • Aortic disease
  • Aneurysm
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Coronary artery disease (cad)
  • Heart attack/myocardial infarction
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Mitral valve prolapse
  • Vascular stenosis

Learn More

Electrophysiology

Einstein Cardiology is a top facility for the treatment of irregular heartbeats and arrhythmias, a field known as electrophysiology. Conditions treated by the electrophysiology team include:

  • Brugada syndrome
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT)
  • Long QT syndrome (LQTS)
  • Short QT syndrome (SQTS)

Learn More

Heart Failure

Heart failure is a chronic, progressive illness that causes the heart to become too weak to effectively pump blood through the body. Conditions that our heart failure specialists treat include:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Amyloidosis
  • Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Cardiac sarcoidosis
  • Cardiogenic shock
  • Decreased ejection fraction

Learn More

Heart Valve Conditions

Einstein’s heart surgery team is among the area’s most experienced with heart valve conditions. Each year, we help thousands of patients, performing thousands of procedures, with an emphasis on innovative and minimally invasive techniques to treat the following conditions:

  • Valvular stenosis
  • Valvular regurgitation
  • Congenital valve disease

Learn More

Interventional Cardiology

Interventional cardiology is the practice of using cardiac catheterization (a minimally invasive procedure) to diagnose and treat many types of heart and vascular diseases. These treatments are often used as an alternative to heart surgery, and generally have less risk of complication and shorter recovery times. Interventional cardiology procedures can be used to treat the following:  

  • Atherosclerosis
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart rhythm conditions
  • Heart valve conditions
  • Peripheral artery disease (pad)
  • Venous insufficiency

Learn More

Venous Disease

When your veins do not effectively return blood to your heart, pain, swelling and blot clots can result that can be serious and life-threatening. At Einstein, our board-certified vascular specialists are experts at treating a full range of venous conditions, including:

  • Chronic venous thrombosis
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins
  • Venous ulcers
  • Venous insufficiency

Lymphedema

Lymphedema is the swelling of the legs or arms caused by the buildup of excess fluid. This type of swelling can lead to feelings of heaviness or tightness, restricted range of motion, and aching or discomfort. It can also cause infections and the hardening or thickening of the skin. We offer a full range of lymphedema treatments for the following conditions:

  • Swelling of the legs or arms
