Baylor Scott & White Health has a world-renowned transplant program. Our patient survival rates already exceed the national average. With more awareness of our program, we can train more transplant surgeons. The more people who understand the impact of transplantation, the more people who will become donors. One donor can save up to eight lives.
Baylor Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute is one of the busiest multi-specialty transplant centers in the world. It is home to a highly experienced team of physicians and other clinicians who provide comprehensive transplant services. A leader in solid organ transplant in the United States, Simmons Transplant Institute has successfully transplanted more than 8,200 organs over the last 30 years. In 2014, the team performed 102 cardiac transplants in one year, becoming one of the top two programs by volume in the country for heart transplantation, with excellent outcomes.
A recognized leader in transplant services, Baylor is committed in its quest to provide innovative research and programs in the future, both for organ recipients and organ donors.
I received an unconditional gift of life. I need to earn what I got by giving back to others.
Clinical research yields a threefold bonus of benefits.
1) Offers patients access to participation in clinical research studies of medical advances, often at no charge.
2) Clinical research that keeps us at the forefront of new drugs and treatment therapies
3) Research translates to quality care at the patient’s bedside. The Simmons Transplant Institute has been at the forefront of transplant research for a quarter of a century and is actively engaged in research studies aimed at improving outcomes and quality of life for transplant patients. Thanks to studies at Baylor, organ failure patients around the world have more medical options today.
Our leadership in transplantation is only as strong as our ability to train the brightest minds in the field. Medical education helps us improve patient care, address the nationwide shortage of hepatologists and transplant surgeons, and attract the best physicians in the field.
