Mount Sinai Medical Center is South Florida's leader in the treatment of heart disease, the nation's leading cause of death. Over the past two years, Mount Sinai has continued to develop innovative partnerships and programs that enhance the outstanding level of quality care provided by doctors at Mount Sinai. A partnership with New York's elite, Ivy-League Columbia University, The Mount Sinai Heart Institute is pleased to announce that it has now opened an adult congenital heart center. Advances in surgery and medication mean that more and more children born with heart defects are surviving. As these innovations have dramatically improved the prognosis of children with congenital heart disease, surviving adults are now presented with the problem of finding a cardiologist who can treat their distinctive condition once they outgrow their pediatric cardiologist. The unique needs of this patient population now demand the expertise of a specialist who can place congenital defects and their repairs in the context of an adult patient and that's exactly what Mount Sinai offers.
