Transplant

Organ transplantation can be a life-changing option for many patients with organ failure. Patients with end-stage renal disease/kidney failure or diabetes can get a kidney or pancreas transplant right here in eastern North Carolina. Each year, we perform life-saving transplants from deceased and living donors. We transplant patients who have been denied by other transplant centers due to their complex medical problems, such as hepatitis, heart problems, HIV and sickle cell disease.

Once you have been diagnosed, your primary care provider, your nephrologist (kidney doctor) or endocrinologist (diabetes doctor) can refer you to Vidant for evaluation. You can also contact our center directly. The Vidant Transplant Program will work with you and your doctors to help to determine if a transplant is right for you. We will guide you through the process and support you to make the best decision for you and your family.

We also provide care for patients with advanced liver disease and coordinate care for liver transplantation when needed. 

Why Vidant?

  • Experienced care. For nearly 40 years, transplant teams with Vidant Medical Center and East Carolina University have given patients a new chance at life through organ transplant.
  • Coordinated and efficient care. On a single day, you will attend educational sessions, meet with the transplant team and begin the necessary testing to determine if transplant is right for you. Then, we work with your doctors to keep you healthy and ready for transplant while you are waiting.
  • Personal care. We understand the people of eastern North Carolina. Our team of nurses, doctors, social workers and pharmacists live and work here. We understand you and your needs and will work with you to ensure the best possible care, close to home.
  • Comprehensive care. Patients with liver and kidney failure require specialized care for all aspects of surgery, not just transplants. We are here to help. Our transplant surgeons are fellowship-trained to care for all your surgery needs including access for dialysis, hernia repair, treatment of hyperparathyroidism and complications of cirrhosis.
