We have performed some of the most complicated cases in the region with excellent results. Our University Health Transplant Institute is the only program in Central and South Texas offering live donor liver transplantation. Our multidisciplinary team also offers specialty services including liver and pancreas tumor surgery and advanced endoscopy.
We are the only center performing pediatric liver transplants along the San Antonio-Austin corridor and Texas-Mexico border. Our pediatric kidney transplant program is the second largest in Texas. We are a model program for children and families in need of support before, during and after surgery. Our specialists provide advanced services for children.
Surgical Resident Graduate Elizabeth Thomas, DO
“As a fellowship trained abdominal transplant surgeon at the UT Health Department of Surgery, I had the great opportunity to participate not only in patient care, but also in academic research and institutional education. The mentorship and guidance we receive will always be essential to our craft. I for one have benefited from the generous lessons by this team. In my current position as the Surgical Director of the Living Donor Kidney Transplant Program, I plan on paying tribute to my teachers by practicing medicine with the highest standards and to offer the gift of teaching to others.”
