UPMC Center for Inherited Heart Disease

You can inherit a lot of things from your family — your eye color, your smile, or your height. You can also inherit some things that may not be quite as visible, such as certain types of heart disease.

Do you find yourself learning more about your family history of heart disease? Or learning about a diagnosed heart problem that you could pass on to future generations? Then the UPMC Center for Inherited Heart Disease is here for you.

Our heart doctors and genetic counselors:

  • Work side-by-side to diagnose, treat, and manage a wide range of genetic heart diseases.
  • Work with you to design a complete treatment plan.
  • Provide genetic testing for your family members.
