Meet the Team

Team Effort

Transplantation unites a multidisciplinary team of specialists in the medical and surgical mission of treating patients with end-stage organ disease, including such potentially fatal conditions as heart, lung, liver and kidney failure, as well as diabetes. Transplant is one of the few treatment options for patients with organ failure. Our team assesses the patient to create a personalized treatment plan for his or her individual needs. These specialists collaborate on and carry out all aspects of the transplant process, with particular emphasis on close contact and communication with the patient, the patient’s family, and the referring physician.
