With advances in surgical technique and improved drugs to prevent infection and rejection, organ transplantation is now recognized as the most effective treatment for many diseases. UCSF is a leader in both adult and pediatric transplants for liver, kidney, pancreas and small bowel, attracting patients nationally and internationally. Children who previously had little hope of survival in the event of organ failure, now thrive as healthy adults with transplanted organs. Each tranplant candidate is carefully evaluated by a multidisciplinary team that includes transplant surgeons, gastroenterologists, nephrologists, hepatologists, infectious disease specialists, and social workers. Patients receive state-of-the-art care for highly complex procedures with intensive long-term followup.
