Newer treatments have been developed for heart failure patients who have symptoms not controlled by medications and lifestyle changes alone. These options may include:

  • Devices to improve the timing of heart function, such as biventricular pacemakers
  • Reconstructive surgical therapy, including bypass, and ventricular reconstruction
  • Cardiac assist devices to provide mechanical support for pumping the left side or both sides of the heart
  • Heart transplant

Why Choose Us

Our Advanced Heart Failure/Cardiomyopathy Program offers patients access to many clinical trials and new therapies, including:

  • Implantable hemodynamic monitors that allow patients to transmit cardiac information from home to physicians for adjustment of therapies
  • New left ventricular assist devices which are smaller, quieter, and more comfortable for continuous support of circulation
  • New therapies to improve kidney function in those with heart disease
  • New hybrid therapies that combine percutaneous interventions (injected or absorbed through the skin) and open surgical procedures (conventional or minimally invasive) for safe, effective, and durable therapy with minimal surgical trauma
  • Coordinated care from the No. 9 best hospital for cardiology & heart surgery in the country, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report

"The future of treating patients with heart failure is extremely bright. There are a number of things on the horizon that will add to our repertoire of helping patients recover from advanced stages of heart failure. These include understanding the genetic causes of heart failure, looking at myocardial regeneration using cell therapy, and advancements in left ventricular assist devices. As LVADs get smaller and fully internalized, we'll begin to recover patients in the earlier stages of the disease and, in fact, help eradicate the syndrome of heart failure."
