Heart failure care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

At Mayo Clinic, doctors in the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine work with a multidisciplinary team of specialists in many areas to provide you with coordinated care. Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota each offer a Heart Failure Clinic staffed by a team of cardiologists trained in evaluating and treating heart failure.

If you have other conditions in addition to heart failure, Mayo Clinic doctors can often evaluate and treat those conditions during your visit. If you have a heart condition that requires surgery, your cardiologist may work with heart (cardiac) surgeons to plan and coordinate cardiovascular surgery.

Our team of highly skilled surgeons, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, nurses, therapists and other medical professionals also care for children at Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota. Doctors trained in evaluating and treating children with heart conditions (pediatric cardiologists) treat children with heart failure at Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota.
