Feb 14, 2016 · Diagnosed with HOCM last year. May be time for surgery in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

Barbara,

You are not alone. I am a 44 year old female that was diagnosed with HOCM in November of 2010 and had open heart surgery to replace my mitral valve and a myectomy. I was referred to Stanford Cardiology Clinics as they specialize in this disease. That is where my cardiologist is located as well as the surgeon who did my surgery. I have had such great care and the staff is amazing. If you ever feel alone and want to talk about this disease or just about life in general I would like to be your friend and say reach out to me.

Jul 27, 2015 · Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy complications in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)

I had gone to several Doctors and clinic before I was Diagnosed with Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy. It took several tries but was finally referred to Stanford Cardiology whom specialize in HCM. I was not near a Mayo Clinic but heard they are very good. I was diagnosed in March of 2011 and had Open heart surgery to replace my mitral valve in July 2011. Feel better but surgeon never did the myectomy so I am still having a lot of symptoms.
