Heart Pumps Improve Heart Function
Smaller, More Portable Pumps
If heart failure has weakened your heart, you may be a candidate for a ventricular assist device (VAD). This mechanical heart pump can support your heart and optimize your blood flow after a heart attack or heart surgery, or while you’re waiting for a heart transplant. It can also be a long-term solution if you have heart failure and are not a candidate for a heart transplant. Today’s smaller, portable, more reliable heart pumps make VADs an option for more people.
We Recommend the Best Approach for You
Our specialists are among the most experienced in the nation and have the knowledge to determine which device is right for you. We were one of the first centers in the Southeast to offer the left ventricular assist device (LVAD) as a long-term therapy to patients who are not eligible for heart transplant, and also as a temporary bridge for patients awaiting a transplant. If you need advanced heart failure treatment, we can evaluate your condition and recommend the best approach for you.
