St. Luke's Hospital Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center
Keith Mankowitz, MD, FACC
Dr. Mankowitz is the director of the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Center at St. Luke's Hospital and has over 18 years of experience managing patients with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common genetic heart disease affecting 1 in 500 people. HCM is caused by thickening of the walls of the heart muscle due to the body making excessive heart muscle tissue.
HCM is a treatable heart condition with management strategies available for all its complications. The majority of patients can be managed conservatively without the need for invasive procedures.
Dr. Mankowitz will perform a thorough history and physical examination. You will also have an electrocardiogram (ECG) and an echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) done. You may also undergo a stress echocardiography and a cardiac MRI, if indicated. You will also be offered genetic testing for HCM. Family screening will be discussed as well. Dr. Mankowitz will explain HCM in detail and will discuss your treatment options.
