Methodist Specialty and Transplant Hospital
Methodist Healthcare's specialized transplant services are primarily carried out at Methodist Hospital | Specialty and Transplant. We also offer specially designated clinics, including San Antonio Abdominal Transplant Clinic, Kidney Transplant Clinic and San Antonio Liver Disease and Transplant Clinic.
Methodist Healthcare has satellite clinics throughout the Greater San Antonio area for patients who do not live locally. Our satellite clinics are open either on a monthly or bi-monthly basis and patients are able to receive their initial transplant evaluation.
Additionally, patients who have received a transplant and are one-year into recovery and in good health may have the option to receive follow-up care at a satellite clinic, instead of commuting to San Antonio. Our satellite clinic locations include:
- Corpus Christi Transplant Outreach Clinic
- Lubbock Transplant Outreach Clinic
- McAllen Transplant Outreach Clinic
- Laredo Transplant Outreach Clinic
- Waco Satellite Clinic
Kidney transplant services
We offer the most comprehensive kidney transplant services in San Antonio and the state of Texas, at our specialized Kidney Transplant Clinic. In addition to traditional deceased kidney donor transplantation we offer more options, so patients can receive life-saving transplants even faster.
We have a large living kidney donor program, meaning patients can receive a kidney from a living donor with two healthy kidneys, instead of waiting for extended periods of time for a deceased donor kidney to become available.
We also have a specialized team solely dedicated to kidney paired donor exchange, designed to match up a donor/recipient pair with another pair that could be a compatible match for each other.
Our Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Program, located within Methodist Plaza, not only provides heart transplants for patients with heart failure, but offers education and support services to ensure a healthy life post-transplant.
We offer cardiac rehabilitation services and provide patients with the proper tools to maintain a healthy diet and build an exercise plan.
We offer pancreas transplant and combination of kidney-pancreas transplant options for our patients in San Antonio. A pancreas transplant alone is for patients whose kidneys have not been damaged by diabetes. Patients with severe Type 1 diabetes are the usual candidates for a combination kidney-pancreas transplant.
With more than 100 pancreas transplants and combination kidney-pancreas transplants performed, we have the most preferred program in Texas.
For patients with end-stage liver disease or liver failure, Methodist Healthcare offers a liver transplant option through our Liver Failure Clinic. We offer comprehensive treatment programs, educational sessions and more to patients and their families as they navigate the transplant journey.
Blood and marrow transplant
We offer adult and pediatric blood and marrow stem cell transplants for patients throughout South Texas. Methodist Healthcare is a proud member of the Sarah Cannon Blood Cancer Research Network and boasts two specialized bone marrow transplant units: Pediatric Blood and Marrow Stem Cell Transplant Clinic and Adult Blood Cancer and Stem Cell Transplant Clinic.
A transplant may be a viable option for patients with blood cancer, including Hodgkin's lymphoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and multiple myeloma, and individuals with diseased bone marrow.
In addition to our two clinics, patients may also receive blood and marrow transplant care at Corpus Christi Transplant Outreach Clinic.
We offer personalized surgical services for liver, pancreas and biliary cancers. Our physicians diagnose, treat and provide care for people with biliary disorders, including malignancy of their liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and transplant services.
Methodist Healthcare has helped to change the lives of over 5,000 transplant recipients. Although, transplants are not possible without organ donors. Help those who truly need it, and register to be a donor today.
