Heart Failure & Heart Transplantation

Physicians have an incredible array of innovative therapies to care for children with congenital heart defects, but for certain complex heart conditions, even our extensive range of treatment options aren’t effective enough to support a child experiencing heart failure.  Join us for a free web chat with some of our heart failure and transplant experts.  From indications for heart transplant and the ins and outs of being on the transplant list, to the surgery itself and life after transplant, our team is prepared to answer your questions.  We’ll also chat about emerging innovations in heart transplant and organ donation that are changing the future of care for children with heart failure.  The prospect of a heart transplant is complex and stressful, but our goal is to reduce anxiety around the unknown and unexpected by walking you through some of the most frequently asked questions about pediatric heart transplantation. 

Hosted by Kurt Schumacher, MD, Pediatric Cardiologist, Ming-Sing Si, MD, Pediatric Cardiac Surgeon, and Meg Zamberlan, NP, Transplant Nurse Practitioner.

This web chat will include a brief presentation before we open up the floor to Q&A.
