Overview

Overview

The George M and Linda H Kaufman Center for Heart Failure Treatment and Recovery offers a comprehensive, integrative approach to the research, diagnosis and treatment of patients with cardiomyopathy and ischemic coronary disease. We also work to control the symptoms of congestive heart failure, such as shortness of breath, fluid retention, and swelling. Our team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and research scientists work together to determine the best treatment strategy for each patient.

Cleveland Clinic's Cardiac Transplant program is one of the largest in the United States. Our physicians also aggressively pursue non-transplant options, including the use of diagnostic or monitoring studies such as B-type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) and medical- and device-based therapies, such as the newest medications, resynchronization therapy, and cell or gene therapy. We continue to investigate and improve surgical treatments, such as left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), left ventricular reconstruction surgery and heart transplant.

The Tomsich Family Department of Cardiovascular Medicine Section of Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation is part of The George M and Linda H Kaufman Center for Heart Failure Treatment and Recovery, one of the premier facilities in the United States for the care of people with heart failure (sometimes called congestive heart failure or ventricular dysfunction).
