Heart Failure Treatment Program
Heart failure, also known as congestive heart failure, is a condition in which the heart does not pump as much blood as the body needs. The term “failure” does not mean that the heart has stopped, only that it is not pumping blood as effectively as possible.
We provide comprehensive, compassionate care for patients with all stages of heart failure, both acute and chronic.
Our team of highly specialized physicians and nurses works closely with experts in cardiovascular medicine, cardiothoracic surgery and heart transplantation to provide integrated care. Patients may be referred to an electrophysiologist for an angiogram or other minimally invasive procedure, to cardiac imaging for an MRI, or to a cardiothoracic surgeon for heart surgery or transplantation. This collaborative approach offers you access to the latest diagnostics and treatment options, as well as to research studies evaluating new therapies.
For appropriate patients with advanced disease, we offer heart transplantation, as well as the latest technological advances, including ventricular assist devices and total artificial hearts. Our team provides care from the onset of congestive heart failure symptoms through the long-term management of living with chronic heart failure, cardiomyopathy, and/or waiting for a heart transplantation.
