Pediatric Transplant & Mechanical Assist Devices

Having performed more than 500 pediatric heart transplants since 1984, we are one of the largest pediatric heart transplant programs in the United States, ranking in the nation’s top five centers for pediatric heart transplant for the last decade. We perform more than 25 pediatric and adult congenital heart transplants each year – typically more than any other hospital in the country – many on children who could not be helped at other institutions.

In 1984, surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital performed the world’s first successful pediatric heart transplant
