Compassionate Transplant Care for Each Patient

At UMMC, we are passionate about providing sophisticated, excellent care that meets the needs of each patient as an individual. This care also involves our patients’ families and caregivers every step of the way.

Our surgeons make the latest treatments available, from innovative kidney transplant treatments to advances in hepatitis C treatment to research and clinical trials.

When you begin your transplant evaluation, we will connect you with a nurse coordinator who will:

  • Guide you through the transplant process 

  • Help you understand the transplant procedure and make all of your appointments 

Experts from various specialties will work closely together with you, your family and your home physician. Our job is to get you the transplant that you need so you can return to the life you want to lead.

Meet the transplant nurse coordinators.
