Welcome to the USC CardioVascular Thoracic Institute's Heart Transplant Patient Guide. Please remember that the information presented is only a brief overview and introduction to the transplant process. More information will be provided to you during your visit for an evaluation and along the way should you be accepted into the program. If you or your family would like to talk to someone who has already received a transplant, this can be arranged through one of the transplant coordinators. We look forward to meeting you and your family.
