Heart Transplant

For patients with advanced heart failure who are otherwise healthy, a heart transplant may restore quality of life. The University of Colorado's Heart Transplant Program, as the only Medicare-certified program in the state since 1986, provides this potentially life-saving treatment.

During a heart transplant, a patient's severely diseased heart is replaced with a donated heart. After thoroughly evaluating patients to determine eligibility, our expert transplant team cares for them before, during, and long after their surgery. We help manage expectations and provide emotional support along the way.

With customized medical management, compassionate care, and the expertise of performing thousands of heart transplants, the University of Colorado's Heart Transplant Program helps provide advanced heart failure patients with a chance at renewed life.
