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.
