Stanford Hospital's specialized team of cardiologists uses an integrated approach to diagnosing and treating heart failure. Our heart specialists work together to ensure you get an accurate diagnosis. Then, we can tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs.
The heart failure team in our Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathy Clinic begins your diagnosis with a complete medical history and physical examination. We usually perform further diagnostic testing to confirm a diagnosis of heart failure. Visit our Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathy Clinic.
Once we confirm a diagnosis, we will discuss your treatment options with you. We offer a wide range of treatment options, from ICDs to advanced heart support methods to heart transplant surgery. Learn more about heart failure treatment.
