Duke Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center –  Durham, NC

The Duke Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center has been an HCMA Center of Excellence since 2018 and is a part of the Duke Heart Center in Durham, North Carolina. “We have created a dedicated, multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurses, advanced practice providers, and genetic counselor who are focused on providing personalized, high quality, and evidence-based case for patients with HCM and improving the knowledge of this condition and its treatments. We were very pleased to describe the work of our experienced HCM team members at the recent HCMA Big Hearted Warriors Tour on November 16, 2023.”  Duke’s recent Bighearted Warrior Webinar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nW4U1hYvZAE

Dr. Andrew Wang the director of the Duke Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center, and because of the growing population in this area and HCM patients seeking expertise for their care, we have an additional cardiologist (Dr. Deepa Upadhyaya, with expertise in cardiac imaging) available to see patients in a timely manner.  The practice can accommodate same-day testing in the same convenient location for HCM care, including genetic counseling and testing, and coordinate other tests and consultations.  The cardiac MRI team is highly experienced in the evaluation of HCM and was one of the first groups to describe the ability of MRI to identify and quantify scar in the heart muscle of many HCM patients.  Duke’s heart surgeon, Dr. Carmelo Milano, is highly experienced in surgical myectomy and mitral valve repair in HCM, and a leader in heart transplantation as well.  Our Duke Heart Center is consistently among the centers in the US with the highest annual heart transplant numbers, with shortlisting times for patients requiring urgent treatment.
