Heart Failure Care
Wellstar's heart failure services are comprehensive and cohesive, involving many types of specialists in addition to cardiologists who are board-certified in cardiovascular medicine.
Expert Care for People with Heart Failure
Board-certified cardiologists collaborate with various specialists to help adults manage heart failure with the right balance of medicine, positive lifestyle choices and monitoring. When someone has advanced heart failure, Wellstar offers specialized expertise and leading-edge interventions, such as left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation.
Clinical trialsThe Wellstar Research Institute works closely with our team and select national partners to offer cardiac clinical trials. We participate in more than 20 cardiac-related clinical research studies at a given time, giving our patients access to advanced treatments close to home. For more information about clinical trials, please talk with your Wellstar physician.
