About Transplant Surgery
The Organ Transplantation Division at HackensackUMC provides a comprehensive, unified approach to patient care. As one of only a few certified transplant centers in New Jersey, we provide complete pre-transplant evaluation, surgical services, and post-operative care. Our Board-certified physicians, together with a team of specially-trained transplant nurses and other healthcare professionals, are dedicated to providing you with advanced and compassionate care. Our transplant team members partner with patients, their families, and their referring physicians every step of the way, from transplant selection, to disease management before transplant, through the surgery and follow-up treatment.
At every step of the process, our multidisciplinary care team focuses on giving you the best possible care—to give you the best possible outcomes.
Continuity of care and follow up are key parts of transplant services. We provide all patients with comprehensive, personalized education on monitoring their condition, administration of anti-rejection medications, how to recognize the signs of infection or rejection, and returning to a more normal lifestyle.
We perform adult kidney, pancreas, and simultaneous kidney/pancreas transplant surgeries, as well as pediatric kidney transplant surgeries, and provide all necessary medical and support services necessary to guide you through the transplantation process.
