The Cardiovascular Institute’s Heart Failure Program provides advanced care for heart failure patients, including those who have had a heart transplant. This specialized program allows heart failure patients to remain close to home for coordinated care of all their treatments and testing.
A multidisciplinary team of leading cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, and specially trained nurses at Maine Medical Center partners with Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA for heart transplant surgery. Maine patients who are waiting for a heart transplant receive their regular treatment and testing at the Cardiovascular Institute.
There are different types of heart failure, and we treat them all here at MMC:
- Congestive heart failure (CHF)
- Left-sided heart failure
- Right-sided heart failure
