About Organ Transplant

The ever-changing field of organ transplantation poses significant challenges and even greater opportunities when it comes to saving lives. The SSM Health Transplant Center at SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital works tirelessly to transform these opportunities into successful outcomes.

Building on extensive experience and a long history of nationally-recognized care in hepatology, interventional nephrology and surgery, we are committed to promoting a patient-centered, multidisciplinary approach to the care of the patient with end-stage organ failure and honoring the donor gift with excellent patient and family care.

Our transplant team, including specially-trained nurses, patient care coordinators and SLUCare physicians, provides medical care for patients with end-stage organ failure requiring liver, kidney, kidney-pancreas, and/or isolated pancreas transplantation.


If you are interested in an evaluation for kidney transplant, we encourage you to download and complete the Kidney Transplant Referral Packet and fax it to 314-268-5132 to expedite the process. All patients interested in kidney transplant evaluation will be reviewed by the transplant team.
