In her blog from the National Meeting of the Heart Failure Society, Ileana Peña, MD, MPH, FAHA, FACC, discusses the newest subspecialty of cardiology and how it addresses an important sub-group of cardiology patients. "We feel that this is a huge step forward since we have felt for many years that we must contribute additional expertise to this group of patients who are very complex and who have a tremendous number of issues, not to exclude end-of-life care and hospice care," says Peña.

Both Dr. Michael Kwan and Dr. Chandra Kunavarapu with Texas Transplant Physician Group are board certified in Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology.
