Treating Patients With Heart Failure

Treating Patients With Heart Failure


For patients whose hearts are damaged or diseased and can’t support enough blood flow throughout the body, we offer mechanical circulatory support (MCS). MCS uses a ventricular assist device (VAD), which is designed to provide short- or long-term cardiac support.

VAD therapy, along with heart transplantation, is the most advanced surgical treatment option for heart failure.

Our program is also a pioneer in mechanical circulatory support and ventricular assist devices. As a center of excellence, we actively investigate new devices for supporting the circulation of a failing heart as well as developing innovative alternatives to, or as a bridge to, heart transplants.

We have the expertise and resources to care for a patient before and after surgery and throughout their life.
