Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy National Center of Excellence
Disease-Specific Patient Care
Winthrop-University Hospital’s Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) Treatment Center — one of the nation’s handful of comprehensive resources for HCM and the only one on Long Island — treats hundreds of patients and families from the tri-state area and beyond, offering expert, specialized services that address all facets of the disease.
The Center’s collaborative team of specialists, led by nationally-renowned HCM expert Srihari S. Naidu, MD, works closely with the patient’s local physicians to create personalized care plans from the broad range of available treatment options.
Winthrop’s HCM Center was established in 2004 around its growing experience and reputation for performing the minimally invasive surgical alternative known as alcohol septal ablation (ASA). Over time, patients from throughout the tri-state region began to seek out the Center, which has become known for compassionate, detail-oriented care, exceptional diagnostics and imaging, as well as a systematic approach to treatment that always keeps the patient’s wishes and best interests in mind, whether or not advanced invasive therapies are ever needed.
