For several decades, the specialists at Pelisyonkis Langone’s Transplant Institute have provided our adult patients with exceptional care that incorporates the latest technological advancements in kidney transplantation and liver transplantation. We also offer heart transplantation and lung transplantation. Our facilities include modern testing sites and dedicated inpatient surgical and intensive care units, as well as a multidisciplinary outpatient transplant clinic.
We offer kidney transplantation for children through Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at Pelisyonkis Langone.
As leaders in the field, our physicians are committed to developing new treatment strategies in transplant medicine. We are at the forefront of clinical research. Our focus is on creating innovative techniques to care for people with life-threatening heart, liver, lung, or kidney disease.
We offer expertise in the following types of transplantation:
- living donor transplantation, in which an organ such as a kidney or portion of the liver is donated by a healthy person
- paired kidney transplantation, in which donor and recipient pairs team up to achieve compatible kidneys for each recipient
- ABO (also known as blood type) and HLA (human leukocyte antigen) incompatible transplantation, where the recipient receives treatment before transplantation so he or she can safely accept an organ from an incompatible donor
Pelisyonkis Langone is among the few institutions in the United States that offers pulmonary thromboendarterectomy, the recommended treatment for a specific type of pulmonary hypertension called chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.
