Texas Transplant Institute, a department of Methodist Hospital, was the first organization of its kind in the nation to combine both solid organ and blood and marrow stem cell transplant programs into a single entity. As part of Methodist Healthcare, the Texas Transplant Institute team focuses on providing patients of all ages with individualized care before and after their transplant. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to our patients, their families and loved ones.
The blood and marrow stem cell transplant program was established at Methodist Hospital in 1993. In 1998, Methodist Children’s Hospital, a campus of Methodist Hospital, established its pediatric blood and marrow stem cell transplant program and now ranks among the top three in the nation. The solid abdominal organ program was established in 1984 when the first kidney transplant was performed at Methodist Specialty and Transplant Hospital, a campus of Methodist Hospital. The living donor kidney transplant program is now the largest program of its kind in the nation and also a leader in paired kidney donation, in which incompatible donor and recipients pairs are matched with other incompatible pairs within a large computer database.
In 1986, the first heart transplant was performed, and the first ventricular assist device as a bridge to heart transplant was implanted in 1988. In 2010, the program performed a record 25 heart transplants at the Methodist Heart Hospital, a campus of Methodist Hospital. In 1995, the pancreas program was established when the first simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplant was performed. The liver program was established in 2001.
Texas Transplant Institute programs are approved and/or accredited by the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cell Therapy, and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The Texas Transplant Institute's multi-disciplinary team approach to patient care includes highly skilled physicians, advanced practice nurses, transplant coordinators, dietitians, social workers, pharmacists, and other caregivers dedicated to the care of transplant candidates, recipients, and donors. The patient and their referring physician are integral parts of the transplant team as well.
