About this clinic

The HCM Clinic is a clinic where heart doctors, nurses, and genetics experts work together. They help people and families who have a condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). HCM affects about 1 out of every 500 people, and happens when the heart muscles grow too much. Some people inherit it from their parents.
