Heart and Lung Transplant at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh

We're one of the most active pediatric transplant centers in the world. To date, the Heart Institute at UPMC Children's Hospital has helped more than 400 children in need of heart and lung transplants.

  • Congenital heart disease
