Cardiologists at Cedars-Sinai have modified a tried-and-true surgical procedure to successfully treat the most common heart problem among extremely premature babies, patent ductus arteriosus (PDA).
A heart transplant can save patients like Jim Stavis from near-death and return them to a normal life. The next challenge: making a new heart last a lifetime.
Take our guided tour of Cedars-Sinai’s newest healthcare destination—designed to help clinicians work smarter, scientists brainstorm better, and patients heal faster. And meet some of the donors, patients, physicians, scientists, nurses, volunteers and service providers who bring the new facility to life.
