Organ Transplantation at UK HealthCare
UK Transplant Center specializes in the care of patients with advanced, end-stage organ disease. Each year, we perform more than 200 transplant procedures, including kidney, lung, liver, heart and pancreas transplants, and kidney and lung transplants for children. As an advanced center, we also perform combined transplants for double-lung, liver-lung, kidney-pancreas, heart-lung and heart-kidney.
We have provided solid organ transplantation services to more than 5,000 patients throughout the region since 1964. UK Transplant Center has clinic locations in Lexington, Louisville, Bowling Green and Northern Kentucky, providing care for our transplant patients near the communities where they live and work.
Our transplant teams include physicians, surgeons, nurse practitioners and nurse coordinators, pharmacists, nutritionists, social workers, and support staff who specialize in caring for transplant patients and guiding them through the transplant process, from the initial consultation through surgery and beyond.
