There are many important things to consider when selecting a liver transplant center, including experience, survival rates, program longevity, participation in research, and physician and staff credentials.
The Miami Transplant Institute is considered one of the leading transplant centers in the world with a major role in liver and intestinal/multivisceral transplantation.
According to recent statistics from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR), The Miami Transplant Institute has the number one liver transplant program in Florida for the highest patient survival rates and fewest organ failures. Additional SRTR data has also shown that MTI has quicker transplantation rates, when compared to the national average.
In 2010, MTI received national recognition for extraordinary performance from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The liver transplant program was one of only a few transplant programs in the United States to be recognized at the Bronze level of Service.
The awards are presented by the Donation and Transplantation Community of Practice, which was established in 2003 by HHS to ensure best practices at all hospitals performing transplants. The awards are based on performance in three categories: graft survival one year after transplant, transplant rate, and mortality rate after being placed on the transplant list.
MTI is a collaborative endeavor between University of Miami Health System/Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine and Jackson Memorial Hospital.
MTI performs approximately 120-140 liver transplants per year and 15-25 intestinal/multivisceral transplants. A multidisciplinary team of medical professionals and patient advocates work together to increase access to transplantation and improve quality of life.
