Transplant Patient Success Stories

Transplant Success Stories at Medical City Dallas

For almost 25 years, Medical City Transplant has been making miracles happen. What began in 1991 as a heart transplant program has evolved into a regional center for heart, renal and pancreas. Along the way we continued to lead the way for minimally invasive heart surgeries, giving previously inoperable patients a second chance at life. Here are just a few of our transplant patients' inspiring stories.
