Transplant

For more than 20 years, Medical City Transplant has been making miracles happen. What began in 1991 as a heart transplant program has evolved into a leading regional center for heart, renal and pancreas. Along the way we continued to lead the way minimally invasive heart surgeries, giving previously inoperable patients a second chance at life. Today, we are among the largest, most active transplant facilities North Texas and in the Southwest, having garnered national and international recognition.

Our compassionate care is integrated—our world-class physicians, many with more than 30 years of transplant experience— work closely with a large team of specialists from immunology to surgery to critical care, and all the specialties and subspecialties in between.
