Heart Transplant Team

Our Medical Team

Our transplant patients are treated by a dynamic, multidisciplinary team of highly skilled, board-certified physicians whose specialties include cardiothoracic surgery, advanced heart failure, transplantation, mechanical assist devices, robotic and video-assisted surgery, and high-risk coronary intervention.

These affiliated physicians serve as principal investigators in national and international research trials, giving patients access to new medical therapies, innovative devices and technologies very quickly after their introduction.

In addition, highly skilled nurse clinicians guide each candidate for heart transplant through the process from pre-surgery preparations to post-surgery follow up. Throughout the evaluation and treatment process, referring physicians are kept informed about patient progress. After a patient’s transplant, referring physicians receive information on follow-up care, including immunosuppressants and other medications, cardiac rehabilitation and any other patient information.
