Heart Center: Heart Transplant

Transplantation is a life saving therapy when there are no other surgical or medical therapies available. Fortunately, if your child does require a heart transplant, he or she is in the most capable hands.

The medical staff at Children’s performed the first pediatric heart transplant in Dallas in 1988. Since then, the hospital that pioneered the procedure in this area has performed more than 100 heart transplants on children as young as newborns.
