Meet the Advanced Heart Failure, VAD, and Transplant Team

Your heart will be in good hands. Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) New Brunswick's specialized cardiac and transplant team includes cardiologists and surgeons, nurses, administrators, financial coordinators, and pharmacists, as well as a registered dietitian and a social worker to manage your health holistically. RWJUH is an academic medical center, so all of our physicians are full-time and have faculty appointments at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and access to the latest medical research.
