Transplant Program

Transplant in 2021

In 2021, we performed more transplants than any program in North Texas. During a very challenging year, we continued to experience unparalleled growth while maintaining exceptional patient outcomes. In addition, we have dramatically increased our telemedicine capabilities and continue to perform transplant evaluations and make waitlist additions.

The Gift of a Second Chance

Transplant surgery can be truly life-changing, providing critically ill individuals with a second chance at life. 

As an academic medical center, UT Southwestern has highly trained specialists who work together to treat even the most complicated cases and provide optimal outcomes. The transplantation teams follow patients from initial evaluation through the life of the organ, and we have a detailed protocol to communicate progress and results to referring physicians.

Transplanting throughout a pandemic

From increased telehealth visits to expanded safety measures, this past year has changed the way we provide care and how our patients receive it, but one thing has not changed: We are here for our patients.
