When doctors told Lydia Clark she needed a new heart, she adopted a philosophy that "life goes on."
Directed by John Lynn Jefferies, MD, the Cardiomyopathy Clinic features a team of pediatric and adult cardiologists, two clinical geneticists and three genetic counselors. They investigate all forms of pediatric and adult cardiomyopathy, including hypertrophic dilated or restrictive cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia / cardiomyopathy and left ventricular noncompaction. The team can also diagnose complex forms of heart muscle disease associated with genetic syndromes, inborn errors of metabolism or mitochondrial disorders.
The Cardiomyopathy and Advanced Heart Failure Clinic utilizes the Heart Institute Diagnostic Lab to provide viral PCR and genetic testing for DNA mutations associated with cardiomyopathy. Our genetic counselor can help patients and physicians interpret the results.
For more information about the Cardiomyopathy and Advanced Heart Failure Clinic or to schedule an appointment, call 513-803-1746. To speak with our genetic counselor call 513-636-4729.
