UCLA transplant programs have maintained a remarkably cohesive surgical, medical and support staff, which forms an experienced and committed team to face the challenges of organ transplantation. Physicians in many subspecialties act as consultants to the transplant programs, and their breadth of experience enhances the clinical success of all of the transplant programs at UCLA.
UCLA supports nationally and internationally recognized research programs in clinical transplantation and immunology, as well as in many related medical and surgical disciplines. This active research environment has led to the development of new and effective surgical techniques, immunosuppressive regimens, and protocols for the treatment of rejection and other critical medical complications of transplantation.
Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center provides state-of-the-art facilities to support the evaluation and treatment of organ transplant patients, with dedicated inpatient units and operating suites. UCLA Medical Plaza is a modern, full-service outpatient facility that provides clinical follow-up care for transplant recipients. An experienced staff dedicated to transplantation offers expert patient service from pre-admission counseling to post-transplant outpatient care.
