Drazner to lead UT Southwestern heart failure and transplant program

DALLAS Sept. 1, 2006 Dr. Mark Drazner, a nationally recognized heart failure expert, has been named medical director of the Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation Program at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Dr. Drazner, associate professor of internal medicine at UT Southwestern, has been a key member of the heart transplant team for nine years, specializing in treating patients with congestive heart failure and caring for patients before and after transplantation. He also has been instrumental in achieving UT Southwestern's tremendous survival rates for heart-transplant patients, which consistently rank in the top 10 in the nation and are the best in Texas.

Dr. Drazner succeeds Dr. Clyde Yancy, who served as medical director since 1993. The Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation program is a key component of UT Southwestern's Heart, Lung and Vascular Center, a collaborative effort between UT Southwestern faculty and community physicians who unite to bring their clinical and surgical expertise to patients needing cardiac, pulmonary or vascular care.

"Dr. Drazner is a talented, compassionate and highly skilled clinician," said Dr. John Warner, assistant professor of internal medicine, director of the Heart, Lung and Vascular Center. "He has been an integral part of our team for almost a decade now and we are extremely pleased that he has accepted this position. We look forward to his leadership."

Dr. Drazner's clinical expertise includes a range of adult heart diseases, including congestive heart failure, treatment prior to and following heart transplantation, and critical care cardiology. He is listed in Best Doctors in America for clinical excellence in congestive heart failure and transplantation.

In his new role, Dr. Drazner said he hopes to continue the established excellence of the Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation Program at UT Southwestern and further enhance its clinical initiatives. '"/>
