Transplant Surgery

Sanford Surgery’s Transplant Centers combine compassionate medical care with the latest in innovative surgery and technology. Our Transplant teams work closely with patients and their families, referring physicians and donors to educate, communicate and increase success rates. We use advanced surgical techniques and medication to help shorten recovery times, reduce the risk of complications and offer a recovery program following transplant surgery for both patients and living donors. With a network of highly-trained specialists, we are here and ready to perform transplant surgeries at a moment’s notice.

National and Transplant Center-Specific Outcomes

The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) is a national database of statistics related to solid organ transplantation. The registry covers full range of transplant activity, from organ donation and waiting list candidates to transplant recipients and survival statistics. Its purpose is to support the development of sound policy, to encourage research on issues of importance to the transplant community, and to facilitate responsible analysis of transplant programs and Organ Procurement Organizations. You will find a complete list of all transplant activities of the Sanford Transplant Center on SRTR. The reported statistics are 6 months behind and can be accessed on line by clicking here
