Inherited Cardiomyopathies and Arrhythmias

Treatment for Inherited Heart Conditions and Arrhythmias from Child to Adult

The Michigan Medicine Frankel Cardiovascular Center and the Michigan Congenital Heart Center at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital offer established, comprehensive programs for the evaluation and treatment of inherited heart conditions (cardiomyopathies) and arrhythmias from child to adult. Our program is one of only 24 in the country specializing in the treatment of these conditions, which include:

Our program emphasizes the importance of family evaluations, and our adult and pediatric specialists work closely together to make sure thoughtful advice is provided to the entire family.​ We also coordinate care between adult and pediatric clinics so that family members can be seen on the same day. 

Since these complex inherited heart conditions require broad expertise, we approach them with multidisciplinary teams, including cardiologists who are experts in genetics as well as clinical cardiology, genetics counselors, electrophysiologists (arrhythmia specialists), cardiothoracic surgeons, and cardiothoracic radiologists. We offer up-to-date knowledge and treatment recommendations, including:

  • Expert consultation
  • State-of-the-art imaging, including echocardiography and cardiac MRI
  • Cardiopulmonary stress testing
  • Genetic testing and counseling for individuals and families
  • Medical therapies
  • Electrophysiology and surgical procedures
