Cardiac Transplant or Heart Transplant has been emerged out as a feasible treatment option for patients with end-stage cardiac disease. Our heart transplant team at Fortis Memorial Research Institute is a world-known pioneer and idea generator in heart, heart-lung, and cardiothoracic surgery. Our team is comprised of experts in their respective fields of cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, pulmonary medicine, immunology, critical care medicine, cystic fibrosis, immunosuppression, and rehabilitation.
Our heart transplantation program is fully certified for the procedure. We provide full range of reparative operations for acquired heart disease such as coronary artery disease and arrhythmia. Our program has the depth and experience to successfully treat patients for whom transplant is the last option, as well as patients for whom it is not.
Heart transplantation may be a feasible option for patients whose hearts do not function well due to:
- Coronary artery disease
- Valvular disease
- Cardio renal syndrome
- Other life-threatening cardiac disorders
Our comprehensive program includes continual transplant team communication with patient/family with respect to all aspects of patient's medical care. Patients and families are also given general educational materials about what is expected after transplantation.
We put great emphasis on our relationship with the referring physician and are committed to excellence to foster high quality continuity of care.
