Integrated care of people who need heart transplants

Mayo Clinic doctors and other staff in many areas work as an integrated team to provide comprehensive care to people who need heart transplants.

Mayo Clinic doctors trained in transplantation, heart and lung surgery (cardiac and thoracic surgeons), heart and blood vessel diseases (cardiologists), infectious diseases, mental health conditions (psychiatrists) and other areas may be involved in your care. Doctors trained in treating children with heart conditions (pediatric cardiologists) evaluate and treat children at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

In the Transplant Center, heart transplant surgeons work with surgeons trained in other types of transplantation to perform heart-lung transplant surgery or other multiorgan transplant procedures.
