Leonard Bailey, MD – World–Renowned Heart Surgeon
We have the promise of a future thanks to our new hearts.
Imagine your two-month-old baby's heart was broken. Or that you might never see your child take her first steps. Thousands of parents face that reality every year. But 25 years ago, that changed for many families when Dr. Bailey and his heart team performed the world's first infant heart transplant at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital. Since that time, more than 2,000 infants have been saved worldwide due to this groundbreaking work. Today, Dr. Bailey's revolutionary procedure is still giving children like Jocelyn and Alondra the chance they never had before.
