Transplant Medicine

Transplant Medicine

Mayo Clinic's transplant teams apply novel techniques to improve care for their patients. These collaborations produce outcomes that set Mayo's transplant programs in high standing with national norms and reinforce their worldwide reputation for quality and excellence.

Since surgeons performed the first kidney transplant at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota in 1963, thousands of organ recipients have benefited from the collective, innovative skills of Mayo's transplant leaders.

A number of transplant procedures have been pioneered at Mayo. Transplant surgeons in Rochester were the first in the United States to perform a quadruple transplant — heart, double lung and liver. They also were among the first to employ a rare "domino" procedure, a method of optimizing scarce organs, in which cadaver heart, liver and kidney were placed into one patient, who donated a liver that would function normally outside his body to someone else.
