Heart Transplant Program

Heart Transplant Program

The University of Michigan Heart Transplant Program is the largest heart transplant program in the State of Michigan and performs approximately 35-40 heart transplant procedures yearly. The University of Michigan Heart Transplant team has performed nearly 900 pediatric and adult heart transplants since 1984. Our team has extensive experience in the care and management of patients in end-stage heart failure and cardiogenic shock.

Our program encompasses not only heart transplant surgery, but also works closely with our Center for Circulatory Support (CCS) to provide bridge procedures utilizing ventricular assist devices (VAD) for patients awaiting transplant and patients requiring long-term management.
