As the largest integrated transplant provider in the nation, Mayo Clinic's care team has experience with just about every kind of transplant and accompanying condition, from common to very rare. Every year, more than 150 surgeons and physicians and hundreds of allied health staff, specifically trained to care for transplant patients, perform more than 2,000 solid organ and bone marrow transplants in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota.

Together, Mayo Clinic caregivers produce some of the best outcomes in the country, including speed to transplant, organ acceptance and patient survival.

Mayo Clinic has preeminent adult and pediatric transplant programs, offering heart, liver, kidney, pancreas, lung, hand, face, and blood and bone marrow transplant services. Mayo doctors were on the leading edge of medicine when they performed their first clinical transplant in 1963. They have remained there ever since, continually improving and expanding organ transplantation. Research activities in the Transplant Center at Mayo Clinic directly contribute to the current successful outcomes of organ transplantation.

Mayo Clinic's transplant practice stands out by every measure:

  • Outstanding outcomes. Transplant recipients at Mayo Clinic experience excellent outcomes. The experience of Mayo Clinic physicians and the integrated team approach results in transplant successes that compare favorably, time after time, with national averages.
  • Experience. Mayo Clinic transplant physicians perform more transplants at Mayo's Arizona, Florida and Minnesota campuses combined than any other medical center in the nation. Mayo Clinic conducts more than 2,000 solid organ and bone marrow transplants each year. Mayo Clinic bases its care on more than 150 years of research, innovation and experience.
  • Multisite practice. Mayo Clinic provides transplant programs for adults at all three campuses and for pediatric patients at its Minnesota campus. Adult patients can be seen at all three sites after their transplant procedure.
  • Comprehensive care. All the specialists, tests and procedures a patient needs are available at the same location, where integrated teams coordinate every step from start to finish.

    Mayo Clinic's focus on the individual brings peace of mind in a time of difficulty.

  • Personalized approach. Mayo Clinic physicians look at the evidence to determine the safest and most effective approach for every challenge patients face and apply this knowledge to obtain the best possible outcomes.
  • Whole-process support. Mayo Clinic assigns each patient an experienced transplant nurse coordinator to help answer questions and provide support before and after transplantation.
  • Detailed follow-up practice. Mayo Clinic physicians monitor patients closely so that each patient gets the care he or she needs when it's needed. This approach ensures the success of the transplant in collaboration with the patient's referring physician. Long-term care, if needed, is seamlessly coordinated with the patient's local physician.
  • Whole-person care. Mayo Clinic transplant staff provides a human experience, taking the time to listen to your questions and concerns, which may include medical, nutritional, social, financial and spiritual issues. Mayo Clinic's integrated care teams provide all the care necessary for the transplant and related medical needs. Mayo makes the experience seamless so that patients can focus on getting better, knowing all their needs are being addressed.

    Integrated teams of specialists bring fresh, innovative approaches, offering patients answers to complicated medical needs.

  • Living-donor experience. Mayo Clinic transplant surgeons have extensive experience with living-donor kidney and liver transplants. Mayo Clinic surgeons in Minnesota performed their first living-donor kidney transplant in 1963, and offer these procedures at all three sites. Mayo Clinic transplant teams in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota perform more living-donor kidney transplants than any other medical center in the nation, and Mayo Clinic is the only center in Arizona that offers living-donor liver transplants.
  • An institution of firsts. Mayo Clinic transplant teams have pioneered numerous advances in transplant procedures and transplant care. In 2009, Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, became the first in the nation to discharge a patient home with an artificial heart, and Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota offered the first clinical hand transplant program in the nation.
  • Research excellence. Transplant research at Mayo Clinic has contributed significantly to current successful outcomes of organ and bone marrow transplants worldwide.
  • Multifaceted approach. Transplant medicine laid much of the groundwork for the field of regenerative medicine. Today, transplantation is one of three approaches being studied and applied by the Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Biotherapeutics to restore tissue and organ function.
