MaineHealth hypertrophic cardiomyopathy services address a complex type of heart disease that affects the heart muscle and can lead to irregular heart rhythms and heart failure. Combining skill and experience with the newest science-based tools and techniques, our specialists treat patients in which the heart’s ventricular walls have become excessively thick, making it difficult for the heart to pump out blood. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common genetic heart condition.
Next Steps for Patients
While some patients are candidates for self-referral to our cardiovascular specialists, we recommend that you ask your primary care physician for help with the process.
