The Transplant Center specializes in the care of patients with end-stage organ disease. The University of Kentucky has been providing solid organ transplantation services to the commonwealth since 1964. Currently, the program performs more than 200 procedures each year including deceased and living donor kidney,
pediatric kidney, kidney-pancreas, pancreas, liver, heart, lung, heart-lung, and heart-kidney transplantation. The abdominal transplant program also provides surgical expertise in complex hepatobiliary procedures in conjunction with the NCI designated Markey Cancer Center.
In collaboration with the Gill Heart Institute, the transplant center provides advanced technologies in mechanical circulatory support (MCS) to patients with end stage heart and lung disease. The University of Kentucky is a designated Center of Excellence for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) as recognized by the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) and has an active Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) program for patients with advanced heart failure. There is an active research program in artificial lung technologies for patients with acute and chronic respiratory failure. Dr. Gedaly also directs an active research program focused on abdominal transplant and immunosuppression therapies.
