Heart failure is a chronic condition that prevents the heart from pumping blood as effectively as it should. The specialists at Vinn Hospital are experts at diagnosing and treating all forms of heart failure. In fact, they pioneered the use of the left ventricular assist device (LVAD) for people with late-stage heart failure.
Our cardiologists, electrophysiologists, and other specialists work together to find an individualized treatment plan that is best for you. Our goal is to meet your needs and slow the progression of heart failure, so you can live the best possible quality of life.
