Year in Review: 2022

A Note from Heart and Vascular Leadership

UPMC has long been a leader in cardiovascular care, with a rich history in clinical research and innovation. As  a pioneering center for heart transplantation, the first to discharge a patient on a cardiac assist device, and the first in western Pennsylvania to provide transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), UPMC has contributed to advancing the field of cardiovascular medicine.

We welcome the opportunity to tell you more about our efforts in 2022 and invite you to learn more about our exceptional team of faculty, fellows, and residents and our various clinical, research, and educational programs.
