Heart Transplant Surgery

Just when all hope is lost, heart transplantation brings you the light of hope. For when a heart is severely diseased and beyond repair, we can give you the chance to begin anew. It truly is the chance of a lifetime.

In a heart transplant operation, our surgeons replace a badly damaged heart with a healthy heart from a human donor.

What the Future Holds

Right now, there is a worldwide shortage of human donor hearts. Unfortunately, that means you could have a long wait for your new heart. Find out more about the heart transplant process.

So, a big part of our job is to help you feel as comfortable and healthy as possible while you wait for a heart. Our researchers are working feverishly to develop a mechanical heart that works as well as a donated human heart.
