Advances in cancer therapy have led to improved outcomes and survival for thousands of cancer patients. Unfortunately, some of these treatments may lead to heart problems, including heart failure.
The Center for Advanced Cardiac Care, in collaboration with Columbia University Irving Medical Center's (CUIMC) Cardio-Oncology Program, is experienced in providing care for cancer patients with heart failure.
Our program is structured to provide care to cancer patients with all stages of heart failure. We are equipped to diagnose and manage high-risk patients receiving high-dose anthracycline therapy as well was those who develop complications from heart failure due to immunotherapy.
In addition, the program has one of the largest experiences in treating cancer survivors who develop advanced heart failure requiring left ventricular assist devices (LVADS) and heart transplantation.
