Baylor University Medical Center's heart transplant program is the second largest in the country - and first in Texas - with survival rates that exceed the nation. You can trust the experience of our transplant cardiologists and surgeons, who provide comprehensive care for patients with advanced heart failure from evaluation to diagnosis and treatment.

Baylor also offers advanced treatment options for patients who are not viable candidates for transplant or who are on a transplant waiting list long-term.
