We use a team approach to give you thorough, personalized care. Our extensive Heart Failure program offers a full range of state-of-the-art diagnostic, medical and surgical options to treat heart failure. The program sees patients with symptoms ranging from mild ventricular dysfunction to those needing a heart transplant.
The cardiologists and other specialists at the UW Health Heart Failure Clinic have access to a wide network of University of Wisconsin physicians. Together, they offer:
knowledge of the latest medical therapies for heart failure
expertise in unusual causes of heart muscle disease
destination therapy for end-stage heart failure
ability to perform heart transplants
The Health Buddy is an in-home internet-enabled device that monitors your heart condition. The easy-to-use device tracks your heart failure signs and symptoms and reports information to Heart Failure Clinic staff through your home telephone line. The Health Buddy creates a link that allows you and your health care provider to stay in touch every day.
Any patient diagnosed with heart failure is eligible for this program. For more information on the Heart Failure program including how to refer a patient, please contact Joyce Koneman, RN, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
