Center for Marfan Syndrome & Related Aortic Disorders

The Stanford University Marfan Clinic was established in 1988 by Dr. D. Craig Miller at the urging of the local chapter of the National Marfan Foundation based upon the perceived need to establish a specialized care center in the western United States. At the fifth anniversary, the name was changed to the Stanford University Center for Marfan Syndrome and Related Aortic Disorders to reflect the broader mission of the Center.

Adult Heart, Lung, & Heart-Lung Transplant

Stanford has been recognized as the pioneering center for heart transplants.
Dr. Norman Shumway and his colleagues developed the experimental basis for transplants in their early work, which laid the groundwork for the first adult heart transplant in the United States at Stanford in January of 1968. Since then, many innovations have originated with the Stanford program, which continues to advance new techniques in surgery. The Stanford team has conducted more than 1,000 heart transplants.
