Meet the Team

Led by renowned transplant surgeons with decades of collective experience, our multidisciplinary staff takes an integrated approach to care that addresses the whole person—medically and emotionally.

Our transplant team is an interdisciplinary group of seasoned specialists—including nephrologists (doctors who specialize in kidney disease), hepatologists (doctors who specialize in liver disease) and transplant surgeons. The team is supported by radiologists, endocrinologists, urologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, pharmacists, transplant nurses, social workers and dietitians—who work together to formulate a customized treatment plan, ensuring that each patient's medical and psychological needs are appropriately addressed.

A transplant coordinator supervises care from initial testing through recovery, serving as liaison among the patient, his/her family, the donor (if applicable) and the transplant team. The psychologist and psychiatrist perform assessments to determine psychosocial preparedness for transplantation and provide support and education throughout the transplant process. Social workers and case managers work with potential recipients and donors to help coordinate pre- and post-transplant care, develop financial plans and address insurance issues. Research coordinators initiate studies, collect data, enroll patients and equip the transplant team with the most advanced information available.
