We specialize in the care of patients and families with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and other forms of familial cardiomyopathy. From the latest imaging techniques, to sophisticated genetic profiling of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, our team emphasizes compassion and communication when it comes to your care.
Many patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathynever need treatment. However, it is imperative for all patients to be monitored by a cardiologist. A cardiologist will work with the patient to determine an individualized plan for monitoring, medical therapy, intervention and follow-up.
The patient will communicate with the healthcare provider to determine treatment options based on factors such as:
Extent of the disease
Tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
Expectations for the course of the disease

Alcohol septal ablation
A procedure in which ethanol (alcohol) is injected into an artery to shrink the thickened heart muscle that obstructs the outflow of blood from the heart.
Medications are used to reduce the intensity of pain. The primary goal of medications is to help patients participate more fully in pain management, and to return to their personal, family, and social activities.
