Intestinal transplant refers to the transplantation of the small bowel (or small intestine), while multivisceral transplant includes the liver, stomach, duodenum, pancreas, and small bowel. Only a few transplant centers in the U.S. perform intestinal and multivisceral transplants, and the Miami Transplant Institute is the only one in the state of Florida. More so, out of the approximately 100 complex surgeries conducted annually in the U.S., MTI performs 15 to 20 of these rare procedures. More important than the number of transplants our surgeons perform, the one-year patient survival rate for our patients is well above the national average. In addition, patients at MTI typically have shorter wait times, with an average of 1.3 months, compared to the national average of 6.2 months. It’s no wonder so many people travel to Miami to access the expert transplant care at MTI.
