Cardiac Surgery

A recently released report by the New York State Department of Health has shown that NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital is a leader in the state for best outcomes for surgeries performed on children with congenital heart defects. The report reviewed 5,466 pediatric congenital cardiac surgeries performed between 2002-2005 at the 15 New York State hospitals with approval to perform cardiac surgery on pediatric patients. Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital performed 1,802 procedures with a risk-adjusted mortality of 3.18. It was the only hospital in the state with a risk-adjusted mortality rate significantly lower than the statewide rate. Our pediatric cardiac team has expertise in all forms of congenital heart disease including neonatal cardiac surgery, valve repairs, single ventricle disease, and implantation of pacemakers and defibrillators using endocardial techniques. Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital also has one of the most active heart pediatric transplant programs in the nation.
