We are committed to continuously improving our expertise so that we can offer patients with organ failure an opportunity to pursue a higher quality of life. Overall, the University of Washington boasts a comprehensive multi-organ transplant program tracing back to 1968. Today, the University of Washington Center for Transplantation encompasses abdominal (liver, kidney, pancreas) transplantation. We partner with Seattle Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center which offers pediatric kidney, liver, intestine, living donor kidney, living donor liver, and heart transplantation. In addition, the University of Washington Medical Center offers programs in autologous bone marrow transplant and high dose chemotherapy.
