Kumar Satya

Interventional and Advanced Heart Failure Cardiologist at Hackensack University Medical Center

How does this work?

I am an interventional cardiologist specializing in the care of advanced heart failure patients. I work with a team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, intensivists, nurses, and technologists to take care of high-risk cardiac patients. I try and restore myocardial function, pharmacologically or by procedural intervention. I am an advocate of utilizing advanced hemodynamics for comprehensive risk assessment and therapy for such patients. This philosophy is the centerpiece of education and care delivery at the Heart Failure and Pulmonary Hypertension Program of Hackensack University Medical Center. I am Board certified in Interventional Cardiology and in Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology. A very small number of cardiologists in the US are dual board certified in these disciplines. Additionally, I am proficient in managing the spectrum of Pulmonary Hypertension patients. I have worked in multiple health systems in the US, Britain, and India. This breadth of cultural experience complements my medical training across multiple disciplines. Specialties: General Cardiology, Interventional Cardiology, Cardiogenic Shock, Pulmonary Hypertension and Advanced Heart Failure including Ventricular Assist Devices and Cardiac Transplant.
