About Our Amyloidosis Program

The Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) Program at the University of Utah is the first in the state of Utah and one of the nation’s few comprehensive programs for the evaluation and management of HCM. The program offers a comprehensive evaluation by experts in cardiomyopathy, cardiac imaging, cardiac genetics, arrhythmia, interventional cardiology, and cardiac surgery. This multidisciplinary approach allows us to provide state-of-the-art evaluation and a therapeutic plan that best suits the needs of the individual patient and family with HCM.

What Is Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy?

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a condition doctors find it when the heart muscle thickens (hypertrophy) on the left ventricle, but the patient has no other disease that could cause this hypertrophy. It is most often caused by a genetic mutation. Read more about hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
