Care team roles
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in transplantation work with an integrated team of doctors trained in plastic and reconstructive craniofacial surgery and other areas to evaluate people who think they may benefit from a face transplant.
Your transplant team will include plastic surgeons who specialize in face transplantation, transplant physicians, a transplant coordinator, therapists, nurses, social workers, a dietitian and a financial representative, among others.
For more than 50 years, thousands of people have received organ, tissue and bone marrow transplants at Mayo Clinic, and Mayo Clinic has been on the forefront of reconstructive facial surgery since the 1930s. The face transplant program combines these long-standing areas of expertise to provide patients with peace of mind that Mayo Clinic has the capabilities and experience they need to have a successful outcome and improved quality of life.
