Why Choose Johns Hopkins for Stress Cardiomyopathy

In 2005, Dr. Ilan Wittstein, Assistant Professor of Medicine, was one of the first physicians in the United States to publish research on stress cardiomyopathy and is considered an international expert on the subject. Since then, he has followed the condition closely and has seen hundreds of patients with this condition. His work has helped to identify several key differences between “broken heart syndrome” and heart attacks.

As a research leader in stress cardiomyopathy, Johns Hopkins also specializes in second opinions. If you’re interested in getting a second opinion, please call 443-997-0270.
