Organ and tissue transplantation is one of the most complex, serious procedures in medicine. It requires a precise diagnosis, a team of experts from a variety of specialties that understand not just the surgery, but the underlying health issues making the surgery necessary. And it requires dedicated health providers after the transplant to ensure a full recovery.
Mayo Clinic is the ideal environment for the many different types of transplants, from the straightforward, though serious, kidney transplant, to the most complex, multiorgan transplants accompanied by rare disorders. That's because Mayo Clinic is made up of teams of experts providing hope and healing in just about every medical specialty — cardiology, cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery, hepatology, nephrology, neurology, pulmonology, hematology, reconstructive surgery, endocrinology, pediatrics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, psychiatry, dermatology, urology, infectious diseases and more.
These experts are part of the largest integrated transplant provider in the United States, performing nearly twice as many solid-organ transplants as any other center. They also produce some of the best outcomes in the country, including patient survival, organ acceptance and how quickly a person receives a transplant.
