Organ Transplant 

Helping you live better, longer

At Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center Transplant Services, we’ve been helping people who need organ transplants regain their health since 1968. Awaiting a transplant and dealing with serious health issues can be difficult, for you and your loved ones. We understand. That’s why our care begins before your transplant. We are here to support you every step of the way: as you prepare for your transplant, during your surgery and recovery, and beyond – for the life you love living.
Meet Organ Transplant Patients

Leading the Nation in Transplant Innovation

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.

Leading the Nation in Heart Transplants

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.
