The Most Complex Cases Come to Us

As part of the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital system, we are able to help critically ill patients who have been turned away from other centers. From high-risk cardiac patients to complex procedures like multi-organ transplants, we’ve earned our reputation for helping the sickest people when no one else could.

In a first-of-its-kind “domino” transplant in infants, cardiac surgeons Dr. Andrew Goldstone and Dr. David Kalfa performed a heart transplant in one baby, and then transplanted valves from her old heart into another infant — saving two lives and paving the way to save more.

Redefining Medicine Through Innovation

Columbia surgeons have pioneered many of the most advanced procedures in use today, and our doctors are leading the way toward tomorrow’s treatments, too. We are experts in the latest minimally invasive techniques—which means faster recovery times, fewer complications, and shorter hospital visits.
