Cleveland Clinic's pediatric heart transplant program works in conjunction with Cleveland Clinic Children's Cardiology & CT Surgery Department to assess and treat children with heart failure.
Our pediatric transplant program began in 1965, with the first pediatric heart transplant performed on March 30, 1985.
In addition to clinical specialists, the entire pediatric team ensures the very best results for the child and adolescent patients, including the referring physician, the patient's family, specially trained cardiac nurses, allied health professionals, social workers and child life specialists.
