Structural heart care in Western Australia
Diagnosis and surveillance
In Western Australia we have designed our structural heart service around you; diagnosis and surveillance of your condition with cardiac imaging will be completed at the GenesisCare or Hearts West centre that is most convenient for you. We have dedicated cardiac imaging cardiologists available at our sites, who are experts in diagnosis and monitoring the progression of your structural heart condition.
Our team are recognised locally and internationally as leaders in the field of structural heart disease and have a board range of expertise and experience.
Once your imaging or general cardiologist identifies that you require a procedure to manage your condition you will be referred on to our dedicated structural heart team-based care clinic.
Our team-based care clinics are designed to support you with coordinated care to meet your individual needs.
During your first appointment you will meet with your specialist cardiac nurse who is also available to answer any concerns related to your condition between appointments via telephone.
Our team based care clinics are located in:
