Organ transplantation is often an effective treatment for many kidney, liver, and pancreas diseases thanks to advances in surgical technology/techniques and medications to prevent infection and organ rejection.
Lourdes Medical Associates (LMA) has a long history of success with organ transplant surgery. LMA has been performing kidney transplants since 1974 and later expanded our program in 1995 when Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center became the first hospital in New Jersey to successfully perform a kidney-pancreas transplantation. In 2000, the Lourdes program continued to grow with the introduction of our Liver Transplantation Program.
Supported by LMA’s team of transplant surgeons and medical specialists (including specialists from nephrology, gastroenterology, hepatology, cardiology, endocrinology and anesthesiology) as well as nurses, technicians, dietitians, social workers and other support staff, we are proud to provide the highest possible level of care and support for our transplant patients and their families.
