Physicians and staff from the Methodist University Hospital/UT Health Science Center Transplant Institute had a lot to be proud of as they recently celebrated a record-breaking 260 transplants in 2011 at Minglewood Hall in Midtown Memphis. 

“Achieving this milestone is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Transplant Institute Program Director and Professor of Surgery at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center James Eason, M.D. “It is a testament to the strength of our transplant program and the quality team we have that enables us to continue to grow our program and save lives.” 

Nationally recognized for its success with kidney, liver, kidney-pancreas and pancreas transplants, Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute has been a leader in the field for more than 30 years. The program offers hope to patients with conditions such as kidney failure, end-stage liver diseases including cirrhosis, Hepatitis C and diabetes. 

Partnering with the University of Tennessee, the program is dedicated to improving the quality of life and the life expectancy for organ transplant patients through research breakthroughs, excellence in surgical techniques and meticulous post-operative care.
