Nearly 5.7 million Americans are living with heart failure, and 670,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. Heart failure is a condition in which the heart cannot pump enough oxygen rich blood to meet the needs of the body's other organs. While some medical and surgical procedures can help heal an unhealthy heart, for some patients, the best option is a heart transplant.
Piedmont Heart Transplant's program is built on a multidisciplinary approach - a team of heart transplant surgeons, heart transplant cardiologists, nurse clinicians, social workers, administrators, psychiatrists and dieticians all working together to ensure the best possible outcomes.
Living with a transplanted heart is a lifelong process. Frequent visits and contact with the transplant team are essential, and we provide support every step of the way in your transplant journey, so you can focus on recovery and rehabilitation.
