Heart Disease

Cedars-Sinai has been making history in heart care for nearly a century.

Pioneers In Stem Cell Science
Our scientists were the first in the world to complete a groundbreaking clinical trial that used a patient’s own heart stem cells to grow and repair heart tissue, reversing the damage caused by heart attack.

#1 In Adult Heart Transplants
The Heart Institute leads the nation in adult heart transplantation. We replaced more adult hearts in 2010 than any other medical center in the United States.

#1 In Non-Invasive Valve Procedures
Our preeminent surgical and interventional cardiology teams have fixed more heart valves without open-heart surgery than any other hospital team in the nation.

Caring for Her Heart
Women’s hearts are different from men’s hearts. The Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center is the country’s first comprehensive program dedicated to researching, teaching, and caring for women’s cardiac health.

Stop Heart Disease Early
Cedars-Sinai cardiac imaging specialists introduced an innovative way to catch and reverse early signs of heart disease. Their efficient method prevents heart attacks while shrinking the cost of healthcare.
