Transplantation Expertise

Since 1967, Ohio State has become a world leader in transplant, and our team of experts continues to drive innovation through advanced research and excellent patient care.
  • Ohio State’s team of specialty trained transplant experts includes disease specialists, transplant surgeons, infectious disease physicians, transplant coordinators, advanced practice nurses, social workers, psychiatrists and transplant pharmacists, all working together to provide high-quality, personalized care.

  • Ohio State’s role as an academic medical center gives our transplant patients access to the latest treatments and clinical trials, such as the islet cell transplant performed here in 2011 that may be a cure for type 1 diabetes.

  • Our physicians hold leadership positions in national transplant organizations like the United Network of Organ Sharing and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons, working to advance the science, practice and policy of organ transplantation.

  • Our physicians have performed nearly 2,000 living kidney donor surgeries using minimally invasive techniques, giving donors and recipients a more rapid recovery and return to their lives. 

  • Ohio State's transplant team completed a six-way, single-institution transplant in September 2011, the first and largest to-date in Ohio, and one of only a handful that have taken place in the United States.

  • Ohio State’s transplant survival rates meet or exceed national benchmarks.
