Welcome to Transplant Services!

Transplant Services is made up of an elite group of surgeons, headed by Göran B. Klintmalm, MD, Ph.D., FACS, Chairman and Chief of Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute. Established in 1984, Transplant Services, who works in collaboration with Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute, is one of the Top 10 centers in the nation. In conjunction with the Transplant Institute, we also work closely with Baylor Liver and Pancreas Disease Center and Liver Consultants of Texas.

We offer comprehensive treatments for liver, kidney, pancreas, and islet transplantation. With more than 6,000 successful solid organs, bone and marrow transplants, we have established a reputation for excellence and innovation in patient care and research. We are proud to participate in more than 60 research protocols and have trained more than 47 transplant surgeons who are now operating worldwide. Our surgeons provide transplant services at two locations, Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas and Baylor Scott & White All Saints Fort Worth.
