Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Program
About Your Care and Condition
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy often goes undiagnosed. Many people with HCM have few, if any, symptoms. Others may experience shortness of breath, dizziness, palpitations or chest discomfort. Some patients experience problems in the heart’s electrical system resulting in life-threatening heart rhythms (arrhythmias).
The Spectrum Health HCM Program utilizes the latest diagnostic techniques in the care of patients and families with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. Our multidisciplinary team includes cardiology specialists (trained in advanced imaging, interventional cardiology, heart failure and electrophysiology), a cardiac surgeon, physician assistant, nurse coordinator, genetic counselor and social worker. This facilitates a comprehensive approach to diagnosis, education and treatment of patients with HCM. For more information, please contact the HCM Coordinator at 616.885.5355.
