What We Do

Practice Overview

Thank you for visiting and learning more about Mid-America Heart & Lung Surgeons, the Midwest's largest heart transplant center. We are the only cardiac transplant center in Kansas City and the 13th largest in the U.S.

We are recognized leaders in our field, having successfully conducted heart transplants for more than 25 years. The Society of Thoracic Surgeons has given its highest Three Star Rating to our practices at both St. Luke's Hospital and North Kansas City Hospital.

MAHLS is involved in leading edge technology and clinical trials, always striving to provide our patients with the very latest opportunities to recover from their illness and return to a fulfilling and productive life.

We are currently involved in numerous research trials of new therapies involving transplantation, valve technology, stem cell therapy, drugs and more. As a MAHLS patient, you will be given the opportunity to participate in these trials, if you choose.

Quality is at the heart of our efforts to provide the best outcomes for our patients. We employ high-tech robotics, minimally invasive techniques, blood conservation initiatives and other methods that can reduce discomfort, speed recovery and improve results.

We invite you to learn more about MAHLS by reviewing our website and asking any of our doctors or health care professionals.
