Strong Memorial Hospital entrance

The University of Rochester Medical Center’s transplant programs offer multi-disciplinary expertise in blood and marrow, kidney, liver, heart, and pediatric transplant services. We've formed experienced and committed teams to face the challenges of transplantation. Physicians in many subspecialties act as consultants to the transplant programs, and their breadth of experience enhances the clinical success of all of the transplant programs at the Medical Center.
