We do more heart transplants than any other hospital in the Southeast, and we're number 2 nationwide. The volume reflects expertise rarely matched elsewhere, care for "very complex patients who literally are not offered the opportunity for transplant at other centers because they are too high-risk." http://spr.ly/6262B0e7q
Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s heart transplant program is ranked No. 2 nationwide in volume for its combined adult and pediatric procedures, according to the most recent data released by Organ Procurement and Transplant Network (OPTN) in July.

Sometimes doctors assume nothing can be done for an elderly cancer patient. But 89-year-old Phila Hach chose chemotherapy to treat her colon cancer. She says it’s extended her life, which she compares to a diamond: “It has so many facets.” http://news.vanderbilt.edu/2015/09/hach-shows-age-not-always-a-barrier-to-cancer-therapy/
