Heart Failure and Mechanical Circulatory Support

Advanced Heart Failure Cardiologists treat all spectrum of heart failure including cardiogenic shock and advanced heart failure. They use advanced imaging, perform cardiopulmonary stress tests, endomyocardial biopsies, perform invasive heart procedures to check heart and lung pressures, and treat patients with intravenous medications and mechanical circulatory support devices including Intraaortic balloon pump, Impella, and other devices. We evaluate patients for LVAD support or heart transplant listing.

Advanced heart failure specialists perform right heart catheterization to assess detailed hemodynamics in advanced heart failure and pulmonary hypertension patients, perform pulmonary vasodilator tests in Pulmonary hypertension patients and perform endomyocardial biopsies in patients with heart transplantation, myocarditis, cardiac amyloidosis, other infiltrative cardiomyopathy and other cardiac conditions. Our Advanced Heart Failure team utilizes multidisciplinary team-based approach in treating patients with heart failure.

Awards and Recognitions

Heart Failure Program has achieved Advanced Heart Failure recertifications from the Joint Commission every two years with last recertification in 2021. Our Heart Failure Program has received “Gold Plus Honor Roll” award from American Heart Association for several consecutive years with recent award in 2022.
