Heart transplantation continues to be the "gold standard" for selected individuals suffering from severe heart failure. However, due to the shortage of donor organs and the significant engineering advances in the field of mini-portable circulatory assist devices, known as LVADs, the actual number of heart transplants done in the United States slowly continues to decline.
The heart transplant program at MedStar Heart Institute at MedStar Washington Hospital Center continues to thrive under the guidance of a multidisciplinary team of cardiologists and cardiac surgeons. Our survival statistics continue to exceed national averages.
The MedStar Heart Institute is the only place to go for heart surgery. Schedule an appointment or second opinion with one of our top surgeons or call 202-877-DOCS. Or order a free information kit about our cardiac surgery program.
