Transplant

Every step in the transplant process is critical. Our team at Indiana University Health University Hospital delivers the care every patient and family deserves, committing our time and skill every step of the way.

According to information recently released by the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN), Indiana University Health transplant programs are among the top in the nation based on number of transplants performed in 2011. As a national leader in organ transplant with hundreds of successful procedures performed each year, our transplant team is extremely experienced and qualified.

We perform a full range of organ transplant procedures, including pancreas, intestine, liver, kidney, and multivisceral transplants - the ability to transplant some or all abdominal organs at one time. Our team works closely in evolving research and clinical expertise through collaboration with the Indiana University School of Medicine, Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital and Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.

Research has shown hospitals that perform the greatest number of organ transplant procedures generally have higher success rates and better patient outcomes. We invite you to learn as much as you possibly can about our program to understand why people travel from both coasts and around the world for our surgical transplant care and short wait times.

Our team’s specialty areas include:
