Expert Teamwork

The transplant specialists and transplant physicians at UC Health work together to care for patients before and after the transplant procedure. By using innovative, often groundbreaking, approaches, we minimize organ rejection, reduce complications and speed recovery time. Our transplant patients are cared for by a holistic team of experts including dietitians, pathologists, pharmacists, social workers and others to address their physical, social and emotional needs.
