The Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute has had a presence in Memphis for quite sometime and has been evolving at a rapid pace in recent years to meet the needs of our patients. To introduce ourselves today I wanted to share a few facts about why I am so proud to call the Transplant Institute home.

  • Patients have come to Methodist from across the United States for their transplant care. Recently, we have transplanted patients from as far and wide as Puerto Rico, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, California, and Maryland, just to name a few. For those patients, we have overnight guest rooms available for their families.

  • The Transplant Institute is ranked as one of the top ten liver transplant centers in the United States

  •  The Transplant Institute has successfully performed over 420 living donor kidney transplants. Our living donor liver transplant program is currently being revitilized. 

  •  Any patient who has a transplant has more than 15 different health care workers who all contribute the transplant process. This includes surgeons, medical doctors, nurses, social workers, financial case managers, pharmacists and many others.

  • Since we began, the Transplant Institute has performed over 3300 solid organ transplants. In 2009, the transplant institute had a record year, performing 129 liver transplants, 122 kidney transplants, 2 pancreas transplants and 6 combined kidney-pancreas transplants.

  • A little history: The first kidney transplant was performed in 1970 at the UT Bowld hospital. The Bowld was the sixth kidney transplant program in the country. In 1984, the first liver transplant was performed, making UT the 3rd liver transplant program nationwide. In 2004, after many successful years, the Transplant Institute relocated to our new home at Methodist University Hospital. As you can see, the Transplant Institute is a busy place. We spend our time dedicated to ensuring every patient is given the best care during every aspect of their transplant experience.
