Temple’s Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Program is home to some of the nation’s most recognized heart specialists, from advanced heart failure cardiologists to cardiovascular imaging specialists and cardiovascular surgeons.
We provide some of the most advanced treatments available to our patients with heart failure, including special advanced procedures, new heart transplantation techniques, and access to the latest heart failure therapies and clinical trials.
Our heart failure specialists offer life-saving options to our patients — especially those turned away by other hospitals. With technologies like ventricular assist devices (VADs) and total artificial hearts, we offer a new lease on life for many patients who have run out of options.
Our commitment to providing best-in-class heart failure treatment extends well beyond the hospital to encompass each patient’s full range of unique needs. Each step of the patient’s journey — from pre-surgical evaluation to surgery and transition home — is carefully managed by our experienced heart failure nurses and nurse practitioners.
