Experienced Cardiomyopathy Team
Our program, directed by John Lynn Jefferies, MD, saw over 900 pediatric and adult patients in 2014, who traveled from 30 states and five countries, a four-fold growth in patient volume in the last five years.
Cardiomyopathy Treatment Options
Based on our expert diagnosis and commitment to family-centered care, we will work with you and your family to develop the best approach for your or your child. We employ a range of cardiomyopathy treatments, including:
- Medical / drug therapy
- Cardiac imaging
- Specific evaluation of the heart’s electrical system
- Exercise and therapy recommendations
- Evaluation and surveillance of at-risk family members
- Cardiothoracic surgery, including Ventricular Assist Devices (VADS) and transplant
Genetic Testing for Families
We perform genetic screening of children and their family members to identify those at risk for cardiomyopathy. Because our physicians are board certified in pediatric and adult cardiology, our team can screen, diagnose and treat adult family members.
