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 cadaveric kidney,
pediatric kidney, combined kidney-pancreas, liver, heart, lung, combined heart-lung, and combined 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). There is an active research program in
artificial lung technologies for patients with acute and chronic respiratory failure. The university has active Total
Artificial Heart (TAH) and Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) programs for patients with advanced heart failure.
