Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a complicated hereditary and cardiac condition, so requires the specialized expertise of physicians and staff specially trained to manage HCM. This is especially true for people diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy who may be contemplating pregnancy, scheduling non-cardiac surgery or facing other health events that need careful cardiac management.
We offer HCM patients significant advantages, including board-certified cardiologists with extensive specialized training (fellowship and post-fellowship) in the treatment of HCM.
A Team of Specialists in All Aspects of Care
In addition, to meet the complex needs of HCM patients, a multidisciplinary team of specialists collaborate to share expertise. The team includes specialists in areas such as valve disease, electrical problems in the heart (electrophysiology), genetic counseling, lung disease (pulmonology), interventional cardiology and heart and vascular surgery. Physicians work closely with pediatric cardiologists from Children’s Wisconsin to screen and evaluate young family members.
