Department and Faculty
Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, offers heart, kidney, liver, pancreas, and bone marrow transplants through the Transplant Center. Abdominal transplant procedures are performed at Mayo Clinic Hospital in operating rooms that are specially equipped for these complex operations. After each procedure, patients are cared for by staff members experienced in the unique needs of transplant patients.
Mayo Clinic sees outpatients with transplant surgical issues from across the U.S. and around the world, as well as from the large local population. Compassionate care for patients and families, as well as experienced medical and allied health teams, is a hallmark of Mayo Clinic's transplant services.
Mayo Clinic's Division of Transplant and Hepatobiliary Surgery includes five abdominal surgery transplant team members.
