Each year, more than 5,000 patients from around the world come to Stanford Health Care to receive the most advanced care for cardiovascular diseases. Our expert team uses an interdisciplinary approach that offers the best possible outcomes to all of our patients.

In addition to ground-breaking research, Stanford has an international reputation for cardiac excellence. Dr. Norman Shumway performed the first adult heart transplant in 1968 at Stanford. Since then, we've performed more than 30,000 cardiac procedures, treating some of the most complex patients.

Care and Treatment

Conditions Treated


Excess cholesterol is deposited in the lining of the arteries, including the arteries that feed the heart muscle, which in turn narrows the artery through which blood flows.

Diabetes and high blood pressure

High blood pressure is twice as likely to strike a person with diabetes than a person without diabetes; left untreated, high blood pressure can lead to heart disease and stroke.

Hypertension (chronic hypertension)

Also referred to as high blood pressure, a condition in which the arteries have persistently elevated blood pressure which can lead to damaged organs, as well as several illnesses, such as renal failure (kidney failure), aneurysm, heart failure, stroke, or heart attack.

Sleep and heart disease

Women with chronic sleep disturbance experience an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
