Heart Transplant Program

Kidney transplant

The Boston Children’s Heart Transplant Program evaluates infants, children and adolescents who are potential candidates for heart transplantation. Our transplant team works seamlessly with the cardiologists and clinicians from the nation's #1 ranked Heart Center, specializing in the care of children with end-stage heart disease.

Since the Heart Transplant Program’s inception in 1986, we have performed more than 270 heart transplants. Our transplant outcomes parallel those at any other top US center, despite the higher level of medical complexity of patients we routinely care for, and in many cases patients who come to Boston Children’s are able to avoid or delay the need for transplant.
