From The Director's Desk

Transplantation is like no other procedure in terms of meticulous planning. Our team carefully completes a series of important steps to ensure that patients are appropriate candidates and are well prepared for transplantation. This care and precision, we believe, is reflected in our higher-than-average survival statistics.

Institute of Heart & Lung Transplant

The mission of the Institute of Heart & Lung Transplant at KIMS is to foster a multidisciplinary approach to the continual improvement of the clinical, scientific, and social aspects of transplantation to improve the lives of patients with end-stage organ failure. We place a strong emphasis on the advancement of basic science and clinically applied research. Our transplant team has a tradition of caring for some of the most medically compromised patients. Nevertheless, the institute has maintained patient and graft survival rates that meet national benchmarks.

Though our physicians have conducted more than 200 transplantations in our programs' history, what really sets us apart is our expertise. As a pioneer in the field of solid-organ transplantation, our program has been consistently challenged with some of the most difficult and complex cases.
