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.
