Transplant Surgery

Our transplant surgeons are leaders in transplant care, working side-by-side with nephrologists, immunologists, oncologists and gastroenterologists to provide the most comprehensive patient care in the region. MUSC is one of the strongest transplant programs in the nation and the only living donor transplant center in the state.

  • Our outcomes and organ transplant survival rates are outstanding and among the nation’s best, despite the fact that we treat more than twice the national average of high-risk patients.
  • The average waiting time to receive an organ transplant here is among the shortest in the nation.
  • Our surgeons and researchers are paving the way for new discoveries that will vastly improve patient care and outcomes.
