The University of Colorado Cardiac Amyloidosis program began in 2012 and includes a team of skilled clinicians in the fields of Hematology/Bone
Marrow Transplant, Pathology, Cardiac Imaging and Interventional Cardiology. This multi-disciplinary team’s goal is to facilitate
the rapid diagnosis and comprehensive treatment for patients with all types of
cardiac amyloidosis. The University of
Colorado Hospital on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado is
the only hospital in the greater-Colorado region, one of only a handful in
the country, that can provide the full spectrum of care for cardiac amyloid
patients. Every diagnostic modality for
cardiac amyloidosis, including cardiac MRI, Technetium Pyrophosphate nuclear
imaging, genetic testing with counseling, myocardial biopsy and bone marrow
biopsy, are routinely performed at our center.
In addition, patients can receive comprehensive treatment within our
Advanced Heart Failure program that can include care coordination with local
cardiology practices throughout the region.
Finally, we are the only program in the region offering patients
advanced treatment options such as Bone Marrow Transplantation, Cardiac
Transplantation and access to the latest clinical trials of new therapeutic
agents. The program currently follows >100
patients with this rare disorder throughout the region.
