Cardiovascular Institute

Heart Transplant Program

The Florida Hospital Transplant Institute was the first to perform a heart transplant in Central Florida, and today we remain the only comprehensive center to offer this surgery in the area. Our world-renowned specialists are highly skilled in advanced techniques for heart failure, cardiac transplant, and mechanical, circulatory support. 

For patients with severe heart conditions, we provide access to ventricular-assist devices (VAD) that help the heart perform some of its functions, enable recovery before or after surgery, or maintain heart function while the patient awaits transplant.

We guide you every step of the way—from the donor-qualifying process through interim treatment, and finally surgery and recovery. Our compassionate, expert team is committed to giving you the best in cardiac care.
