Patients are referred to The Transplant Center from all over the western United States.
We offer a skilled team of transplant surgeons and a team dedicated to providing the best care available to transplant patients.
The staff at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix pledges to help patients and their families before, during and after the transplant. This includes the highest standards of hospital and outpatient medical care, combined with a comprehensive network of support led by our transplant nursing coordinators and social workers.
An organ transplant is a positive, life-changing event for patients who have suffered from organ failure. It is also an emotional time for both the patient and family and requires a firm commitment by the patient to fully participate in the transplant's success. It involves patience, hard work and understanding.
