Supporting Cardiac Surgery

Giving to the Department of Cardiac Surgery

Our Vision

Cardiac surgery has a long and rich tradition at the University of Michigan. Many "firsts" have occurred within our group, including the first heart transplant in Michigan, first successful repairs of a number of congenital heart defects, and the first residency program specifically designed to train new heart surgeons in the United States. Our busy cardiac surgeons are international leaders in treating heart disease in patients at every life stage: from newborn babies to the elderly.

But the Department of Cardiac Surgery is more than just the operating room. It is and has always been about innovation - discovering new ways to treat heart disease. It is about treating the patients of today and inventing new ways to treat the patients of tomorrow. Our physicians and researchers are working to develop deeper understandings and promising approaches to solving and treating heart disease, as well as clinical research with particular interest in circulatory support, heart transplantation, and aortic aneurysms. We are also investing heavily in regenerative medicine, an exciting area of discovery.

Few groups in the nation are better positioned to advance the future of cardiac surgery, and the Victors for Michigan campaign will help ensure that vital work moves forward.

Become a Victor

Today, the U-M Department of Cardiac Surgery has the opportunity to transform the future for people who suffer from congenital heart defects or cardiovascular disease. Philanthropic support is crucial for these efforts and can bring this potential to life. A gift to the Department of Cardiac Surgery at the University of Michigan will make you a partner in our vital work. With your contribution, we can continue our efforts to advance the practice of medicine and to help patients fight disease.
