Heart Failure Program
According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, some 5.8 million Americans suffer from congestive heart failure, a condition in which the heart is not sufficiently pumping enough blood to meet the body’s needs.
The Heart Failure Program at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West is dedicated to aggressively treating this disease. Led by Marrick Kukin, MD, a nationally recognized heart failure expert, our program employs cutting-edge scientific and clinical developments and a multidisciplinary approach to improve a patient’s quality of life and reduce the risk of death. It is geared for patients at all stages of the disease -- from those with no signs or symptoms to patients with advanced disease.
The program’s services include:
- Case management to optimize care and outcomes
- Education and disease management strategies to enhance a patient’s well-being
- Nutritional assessments
- Exercise programs
- Counseling to assist with lifestyle changes
- Information on heart failure clinical trials
- Evaluations for advanced heart failure therapies, including heart transplantation
