Exceptional care. Extraordinary outcomes.

At the UNC Center for Transplant Care, our goal is not just to give our patients a longer life, but a substantially better quality of life.

To that end, our responsibility goes beyond the physical recovery of our patients. From the moment care begins to long after transplant occurs, true healing requires an individualized treatment approach that draws on the leadership, strength, and teamwork of the entire Transplant Center team.

From surgeons, nurses, and anesthesiologists; to infectious disease specialists, researchers, and rehabilitation consultants; to social workers and financial coordinators, all bring their own unique skills to the table. But in the end, all work together for one common goal: helping our patients and their families deal with both the challenges, and new possibilities, ahead in their lives.

At UNC, we follow the latest listing criteria set forth by the national United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), as well as stringent guidelines by national and international associations for selection of transplant candidates.
