Duke is home to North Carolina's largest pediatric heart transplant program, offering outstanding outcomes, coordinated care, family support, and long-term follow-up.
We also provide an aggressive program in mechanical circulatory support for children and adolescents whose heart failure is unusually severe or rapidly progressive. This may involve the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) or ventricular assist devices.
The heart transplant clinic serves new patients for whom heart transplant is being considered and provides follow-up for patients who have undergone heart or heart-lung transplant. We are the only center in the state that offers cardiac transplants in infants, and, in select cases, even offer an ABO-incompatible protocol.
Focused care for adjusting the different anti-rejection or congestive heart failure medications is provided as well as coordination of care between other subspecialty caregivers.
Initial referrals to the Duke Children’s Heart Program are generally made by your child’s primary care physician. To make an appointment, please call 919-668-4000.
