“They’ve got a heart for Michael!”

After a diagnostic test reveals that he has been near death more than a thousand times, Mike Froome is put on the waiting list for a heart transplant. This film reveals what it’s like to wait for a heart—and then to finally hear that your new heart is on its way.

Expert care from hypertension to heart failure.

Heart failure is a devastating condition that robs people of their ability to do even simple tasks. It can be a frightening diagnosis, but there are options available for managing this condition and slowing its progression.

At UR Medicine, we are providing new hope to people with heart failure. We investigate all of the available options that could improve your health and quality of life, so you can get back to doing the things that you enjoy. We offer the most advanced treatments for heart failure, including medication, ventricular assist devices (VADs) and heart transplants—which are not available anywhere else in the region.

  • We are the only heart transplant hospital in all of Upstate New York.
  • We provide personal attention and accessibility that is often not possible at heart centers in major metropolitan areas.
  • We are one of the nation's leaders in the development of ventricular assist devices (VADs) for the treatment of heart failure.
  • We have performed over 200 heart transplants—the gold standard treatment for end stage heart failure.
  • We have implanted over 400 VADs.
