The Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center at Rochester Regional Health provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment services for patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or HCM, a heart disease that affects the heart muscles.
We offer the region’s most experienced team in caring for HCM patients and their families, offering innovative treatments that are not available at other institutions locally.
