Heart and Heart-Lung Transplant Program

The Heart and Heart-Lung Transplant Program offers adult and pediatric heart and heart-lung transplantation and assist device services.  Physicians can refer adult candidates for cardiac transplantation to the Ahmanson-UCLA Cardiomyopathy Center where they are evaluated by the team of cardiologists.  Pediatric cardiac patients can be referred to the Pediatric Cardiomyopathy Clinic.

Please also see the divisions of Heart TransplantLung and Heart-Lung Transplant, in the Department of Transplantation Services for additional information.

After business hours, urgent referrals can be made through the transplant nurse coordinators by calling the UCLA page operator (310/825-6301).
