As a national leader in heart failure and transplantation, Penn Medicine's specialized heart failure cardiologists and surgeons offer medical treatments not available at other centers.
Choosing Penn for your transplant gives you the best chance for the best results. Our patients have gone on to do amazing things after heart transplantation. Take Derek Fitzgerald, for example. Derek is a Penn transplant recipient and has now completed two IRONMAN® triathlons.
At Penn Heart and Vascular, you benefit from:
When heart failure progresses to an advanced stage, conventional therapies and symptom management strategies may no longer work. Penn Medicine offers more heart failure treatment options for patients with advanced and end-stage heart failure than any other hospital in the region.
Access to the latest and most sophisticated cardiac support devices including ventricular assist devices (VADs).
Penn performs more heart transplants than any other hospital in the region with survival rates that exceed the national averages.
