About Organ Transplantation

The history of transplanting organs or tissue dates back to 1954. Today, most organ transplants are relatively safe, routine procedures, and transplantation is considered to be the best treatment option for thousands of patients with a variety of health conditions every year.

Transplantation is the act of surgically removing an organ from one person and placing it into another person. Transplantation occurs because the recipient's organ has failed or has been damaged through illness or injury.

Organ Transplant Medications

  • After transplant, patients will focus on learning how to manage medications and their side effects as part of daily life. The medications a patient must take after a transplant can be just as important as the organs or tissues that are transplanted as these medications keep the body from rejecting the transplant.
