How common is transplant rejection?
Do you ever envision a world where transplant won't be needed?


On Wednesday, December 19, Deborah J. Rhodes, M.D., associate medical director for the Department of Development, joined Leadership Council members for a conversation with Charles B. Rosen, M.D., director of the Mayo Clinic Transplant Center, to learn Mayo Clinic’s latest advances in transplantation and how philanthropy is furthering this work.

The Highlights

  • Mayo is the largest integrated transplant provider in the United States with more than 150 surgeons and physicians and hundreds of allied health staff who are trained in caring for transplant patients.
  • Mayo offers special expertise in transplantation, including novel therapies for organ recipients, treating complications from obesity and diabetes and, avoiding or detecting transplant rejection.
  • Multi-disciplinary teams collaborate across Mayo to advance patient care by moving transplantation research from the bench into the practice. Philanthropy is critical to making these advances happen.

How You Can Help

  • Share the good news. Let others know all that Mayo Clinic is doing to accelerate the discovery, development and delivery of life-altering treatments and technologies to benefit transplant patients. We encourage you to freely share this page.
  • Inspire others. Introduce your family, friends and colleagues to Hanna Kohlmyer or Yasmin Mullings, patients whose transplant journeys at Mayo have led to hope and healing. You may even be inspired to tell your own Mayo Clinic story.
