Maria Rosa Costanzo from the Advocate Heart Institute: Why Only Specialists Should Treat Heart Failure
JULY 10, 2016
Heart failure may be a common condition but because of its risks and the chance of other conditions develop some believe only specially trained doctors should treat the condition.
Maria Rosa Costanzo, MD, from the Advocate Heart Institute in Naperville, IL, discussed why the condition should be left to more specialized doctors during the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology held in nearby Chicago. While there are some commonalities in the treatment of heart failure Rosa said in many cases changes in the treatment can require a more specialized approach than some doctors can provide.
