Expert Team

Under the leadership of Eduardo Marbán, MD, PhD, Director of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, a team of cardiac experts from various specialties collaborate to develop a treatment plan designed specifically for each individual patient.  This interactive approach ensures that every diagnostic and treatment options is considered and that the outcome for the patient is the best possible, given all the factors involved.


Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
