Heart Transplant

A heart transplant is a surgery that replaces a diseased heart with a healthy heart from a donor to improve a patient’s quality of life. This treatment is reserved as a final option for patients who have heart failure or when one or both heart ventricles fail to work properly. Patients have to be put on the heart transplant waiting list and must take immunosuppressive medication, which prevents the patient’s immune system from rejecting the new heart.
