CNY Cardiology Cardiac Services
The dedicated heart specialists at CNY Cardiology offer a full complement of advanced cardiac services to help patients regain their health to the greatest extent possible. Knowledgeable staffs will explain the treatment options available and provide advice throughout diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.
The most state-of-the-art technology and innovative diagnostic and treatment options are utilized in the care of patients. The CNY Cardiology cardiac teams are actively involved in many national clinical trials and work tirelessly to discover new and better ways to treat the heart and bring those discoveries to patients.
In fact, CNY Cardiology is the first facility in Central New York to perform a new, lifesaving option for cardiac patients who had previously been deemed inoperable.
Recently approved by the FDA, the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive procedure in which an artificial aortic heart valve is attached to a wire frame and guided through the femoral artery by catheter to the heart. Once in place, the wire frame enlarges, which allows the new valve to pump the blood appropriately. To date, the TAVR procedure has reaped excellent outcomes and extended the lives of patients who had previously faced a very limited life expectancy.
