The Division of Solid Organ Transplantation at the University of Rochester Medical Center has earned a national reputation for offering sensitive, compassionate, world-class care from some of the best physicians and staff in the country.
Our transplant surgeons and physicians are national leaders, familiar with the most advanced technology and techniques. Dedicated to advancing medical knowledge and passing it on to the next generation, they each engage in extensive research and teach tomorrow's doctors and surgeons at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
But their primary mission is patient care. As experts in all aspects of organ disease and treatment, they recognize that transplantation may be the treatment of last resort. But when a transplant is the best, or only option, they're the ones to turn to.
