Through transplantation, our goal is to provide you the highest-quality care and to restore you to a full and productive life. The transplantation teams will follow you from the initial evaluation through the life of the organ, and we have a detailed protocol to communicate your progress and results to your referring physicians.
We are also a Medicare-approved transplant center for heart, liver, lung, and kidney transplantation.
Our physicians performed the first successful kidney transplant in Texas in 1964. That kidney is still functioning today. Since then, we have performed more than 1,300 lifesaving transplants, including:
Our satellite clinics extend UTSW transplant services to the community.
Patients needing evaluation for heart, LVAD, kidney, or liver transplants can be referred to our outpatient clinics located in Austin, Denton, El Paso, and Fort Worth.
