Pulmonary Hypertension Comprehensive Care Center
We provide innovative care for children with pulmonary hypertension, a rare and serious disease that can cause permanent damage to the lungs and life-threatening heart failure. ColumbiaDoctors' Pulmonary Hypertension Comprehensive Care Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital was one of the first and is one of the largest in the world. The multidisciplinary team offers the most advanced diagnostics and targeted medical treatments for all patients with pulmonary hypertension.
Patients benefit from our 30 years of groundbreaking research—including major clinical trials, landmark genetic discoveries, and pioneering treatments in the field of pediatric and adult pulmonary hypertension. Columbia participated in the first clinical trial to use continuous IV epoprostenol and since then has engaged in all pivotal trials to prompt FDA approval of novel therapies for pulmonary arterial hypertension, as well as landmark genetic discoveries in pulmonary hypertension.
Columbia's Pulmonary Hypertension Comprehensive Care Center led by Erika Berman Rosenzweig, MD, is accredited by the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. Our experts treat all forms of pulmonary hypertension and associated right heart failure, including idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension and secondary forms of pulmonary hypertension associated with various conditions.
