The Stanford Hospital Heart Transplant Program features a specialized team of surgeons, cardiologists, pathologists, immunologists, psychiatrists, and infectious disease specialists who are committed to providing the most advanced heart failure and transplant therapies in a state-of-the-art facility. Our mission is to provide outstanding clinical care, education and support throughout the transplant process. People in need of a heart transplant will also receive expert care, support and guidance from Stanford's transplant nurse coordinators, physical therapists, social workers, financial coordinators, dieticians, pharmacists and specially trained nursing staff.
Stanford Health Care’s Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery completed ten heart-lung block transplants in 2018 – more than any other group in the world.
