Since our transplant program first began in 1967, the Comprehensive Transplant Center at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has become a world leader in lifesaving care and transplant research, providing heart, lung, kidney, liver, pancreas and kidney-pancreas transplants.
Our established team of specialty trained transplant experts includes:
- Disease specialists
- Transplant surgeons
- Infectious disease physicians
- Transplant coordinators
- Advanced practice providers
- Social workers
- Transplant pharmacists
Being an academic medical center allows us access to the latest treatments and clinical trials of new immunosuppressive drugs and anti-rejection therapies. Our current standard of care is using prednisone-free immunosuppressive medications, a regimen available to about one quarter of all patients in the United States.
