Shorter Wait Times

Shorter wait times help improve the chances of successful heart transplantation, because people receive a new heart while they are stronger and healthier.

We transplanted more patients, we transplanted them faster, and we have been getting great outcomes.

Doctor Stories

Stanford's Donor Heart Study seeks to save discarded donor hearts

Stanford Medicine cardiologist Kiran Kaur Khush, MD, set out to discover why so many donor hearts were going unused. She and fellow researchers spearheaded the groundbreaking Donor Heart Study, the largest study ever conducted on donor heart acceptance for transplantation. The results of this research could significantly increase the number of successful heart transplants performed, saving countless lives.
