The Kovler Organ Transplantation Center at Northwestern Medicine has been providing transplantation services since 1964 and is an international leader in research, innovation and patient care.
Our surgeons transplant more than 400 organs each year, making the Northwestern Medicine program among the top in the United States in patient outcomes and the number of transplants performed. Northwestern Medicine is currently leading a collaborative National Institutes of Health (NIH)–funded study examining safety in living donor procedures.
The Center’s programs include:
We understand the importance of communication with physicians who refer patients to us for care. We are committed to timely feedback and collaborative working relationships. We are ready to help physicians with the management of patients with liver and kidney disorders, whether the need is outpatient consultation, specialized diagnostic procedures, advanced laparoscopic surgery, Hepatobiliary surgery or transplantation.
