Staffed by some of the foremost cardiothoracic surgeons and pulmonologists in the field, we are the premier center for lung and heart-lung transplantation in Northern California.

Heart-Lung Transplant

The world’s first successful combined heart-lung transplant was performed at Stanford Hospital in 1981 and we remain a leader today. Our pediatric Heart-Lung Transplant Program at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford is the only center for this treatment in Northern California. Staffed by some of the foremost cardiothoracic surgeons and pulmonologists in the field, our team has performed more than 20 pediatric heart-lung transplants since 1986 and has some of the longest-surviving patients.
