From The Director's Desk
Transplantation is like no other procedure in terms of meticulous planning. Our team carefully completes a series of important steps to ensure that patients are appropriate candidates and are well prepared for transplantation. This care and precision, we believe, is reflected in our higher-than-average survival statistics.
We also believe education is a key component to the preparation process because patients who are better informed tend to deal with post-transplant demands more successfully. Knowledge is empowering and demystifying for both patients and their caregivers. Giving people suffering from heart failure a renewed lease on life.
