Connie Milstein represented her family at the ceremony celebrating the opening of the state-of-art Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center. As part of the already medically outstanding New York Presbyterian Hospital, the latest cardiac facility should prove to take cardiac care to new levels of excellence.
One of the cutting-edge high-tech machines the Milstein Center will have at its service is the Zeego 3-Dimensional Circular X-ray device. The Zeego, of which the Milstein Center will have three of the country’s eleven in total, is capable of giving doctors an unprecedented view of the internal structure and functioning of their patients with none of the invasiveness of previous procedures to obtain similar information.
“The Milstein Heart Center will allow New York-Presbyterian to continue on its path of advancing new treatments, a road that saw this Hospital perform the first successful pediatric heart transplant operation, the country’s first robotically assisted open-heart procedure to be completed with a totally closed chest, and the country’s first robotically assisted, totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass surgery, along with many other breakthroughs in cardiovascular research and patient care,” says Dr. Craig R. Smith, surgeon-in-chief at the Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center.
The Milstein Family Heart Center, with the help of Connie Milstein, will lead the country into the future of excellent health care for healthier, more productive lives.
