Advanced Surgical Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease
Our heart surgery program continues the legacy of Dr. Norman Shumway, who completed the first adult heart transplant in the U.S. in 1968. Our internationally recognized cardiac surgeons perform advanced surgical procedures and pioneer new ones, with an emphasis on minimally invasive techniques whenever possible.
Our clinical excellence, combined with our ground-breaking research, makes us one of the top heart surgery programs in the nation.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may 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.
