Advanced Heart Disease
The interdisciplinary Heart Failure Program provides specialized inpatient and outpatient treatment for adults with heart disease, heart muscle disease and advanced heart failure.
Our board-certified physicians provide patient consultation and care in conjunction with their referring physician for all types of cardiomyopathy including hypertrophic, familial, peri-partum and amyloidosis. Our physicians are board-certified in advanced heart failure and transplantation as well.
Led by Dr. Michele Hamilton, our 30-bed Advanced Heart Failure Unit provides state-of-the-art multidisciplinary care for congestive heart failure and heart transplant patients. A first of its kind center in California, the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute’s Advanced Heart Failure Unit utilizes a team approach to improving the standard of patient care with intensive heart-health education as well as team-focused care for the management and real-time monitoring of our patients. Our medical and nursing team coordinates daily with a dedicated group of pharmacists, nutritionists, physical therapists and social workers.
