Dependable and Dedicated
The University of North Carolina is home to one of the most accomplished and dedicated transplant teams in the region. Certified by the American Society of Transplant Surgeons, our mission is the advance of transplantation and clinical outcomes through efforts in education, research, and clinical medicine. Programs provide comprehensive treatment for kidney, liver, and pancreas.
Excellent results achieved are due to a concerted team effort in providing comprehensive pre-transplant, peri-operative, and post-operative care to our patients. Referring physicians are considered integral and are incorporated into pre-transplant and post-transplant care. Clinical and research teams give patients important advantages in access to the latest immunosuppressive medications and other innovative medical strategies.
Partnership with Patients
The UNC Center for Transplant Care, a partnership between the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and UNC Hospitals, provides UNC Hospitals access to some of the best researchers in transplantation in the region. In addition, researchers and health care professionals combine resources allowing for greater interaction and collaboration in an effort to advance the treatment and outcomes for patients. This partnership is essential in providing optimal care to patients.
