Dr. Htyte currently holds board certifications in five specialties including interventional cardiology, endovascular medicine, and cardiovascular diseases. He is an active and practicing fellow of three well-regarded societies that are crucial to the development of current guidelines and standards of practice in their respective fields of medicine. In addition to managing and treating the spectrum of cardiac diseases, he specializes in the treatment of peripheral arterial and venous issues. He is a strong advocate of effective patient education and aims to work in close collaboration with his patients to lessen the disease burden of chronic, progressive, and debilitating cardiovascular and peripheral vascular conditions.
After completing his master of science in molecular biology with an undergraduate degree in biochemistry, he received his doctorate at Ross University School of Medicine. He then completed his residency in internal medicine with the Columbia University School of Physicians and Surgeons at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City, NY (now Mt. Sinai Morningside and West hospitals). He then continued his training in cardiovascular diseases with a sub-specialization in interventional cardiology at John Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute with the Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans, LA.
Conditions Dr. Htyte treat include complex hypertensive heart disease, coronary artery disease, chest pain from other cardiac causes, myocardial infarction (MI or heart attack), coronary stent placement, secondary prevention of cardiac events, non-invasive management of valvular heart diseases, peripheral vascular health and stabilization of atherosclerotic plaque, peripheral artery disease and/or venous insufficiency causing claudication leg pain, heaviness, and swelling, in addition to common endovascular treatments for various circulatory morbidities. He has been very successful in the treatment of non-healing ulcers and iliac vein compression syndrome.
Other diseases he manages include chronic ischemic heart disease, acute coronary syndrome, unusual palpitations, and cardiac rhythm derangements, leg artery blockages causing claudication pain, and venous ablation and restorative therapy. By promoting early recognition and treatment of under-diagnosed conditions such as chronic venous insufficiency and iliac vein compression syndrome, Dr. Htyte hopes to overcome obstacles that hinder good quality of life.
As a Burmese (Myanmar) physician having lived in Jamaica, W.I., and now serving New York City’s diverse population, Dr. Htyte speaks Burmese (Myanmar), English, and Spanish. In addition to being a full-time staff attending at Richmond University Medical Center in Staten Island, NY, he is affiliated with NYU Langone Health and New York Presbyterian (NYP) Brooklyn Methodist Hospitals. In his commitment to patient-centered care, he continues to place emphasis on patient education in order to slow down disease progression, while taking care to promptly intervene when invasive treatment is indicated.
