We Perform Transplants Other Centers Can’t

Because of our high volume, decades of experience, cutting-edge therapies and multidisciplinary team of specialists, we can help people who have been turned down by other centers, including those with advanced heart or vascular disease and people with obesity. We can even offer kidney transplants to those who are “sensitized” (having high amounts of antibodies circulating in the blood that can result in rejecting the kidney).
