How do you shorten surgery times, create a less invasive procedure, and lower health care costs for those in need of a liver and kidney transplant? You pioneer an innovative surgical technique that’s the first of its kind in the nation. Developed by Dr. Ajay Sahaipal, the En Bloc technique is a surgical method that drastically reduces surgery length and recovery times for kidney and liver transplant patients.
We have a national reputation for excellence in heart failure therapies. We’ve performed more than 1,000 heart transplants since we started performing them in 1968 – shortly after the first successful heart transplant.
We’ve also implanted over 900 ventricular assist devices. A ventricular assist device (VAD) is sometimes used as a temporary solution while a person waits for a heart transplant. For people who prefer not to have a heart transplant or who aren’t eligible for a transplant, a VAD may be a long-term solution.
Our experience and expertise draws people to us from all over the region.
