Frequently Asked Questions

How many adult transplants do you (Stanford) do a year?

About forty per year.

Where does my caregiver sleep? Is there a bed in the hospital room?

Stanford does all it can to enable your loved ones to be with you when you are in the hospital. A new hospital is being built and each patient room will have a place for a caregiver to sleep in 2014.  Currently, many Stanford hospital rooms are singles and a caregiver can sleep on a rollaway cot or chair. Having a loved one stay with you through the night is harder to accommodate in shared patient rooms, but waiting rooms are plentiful.

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.

For Patients

Your doctor may request an evaluation by a heart failure specialist, who will review your medical records and determine if additional tests are necessary.

Patients being considered for a heart transplant will be referred to the Cardiomyopathy Center. 

Self-referrals are accepted.


Bring results from prior lab tests, if requested.
