Dr. Vianna leads the Miami Transplant Institute (MTI), a unique affiliation between Jackson Health System and UHealth – University of Miami Health System, as director of MTI and chief of liver, intestinal and multivisceral transplant.

He began his career as a fellow at Jackson Memorial Hospital more than 15 years ago and returned to MTI after most recently serving as director of intestinal and multivisceral transplantation at Indiana University Health Transplant.

Dr. Vianna is a pioneer in intestinal and multivisceral transplantation. Since his arrival, MTI’s patient survival and volumes for these types of transplants has become one of the highest in the nation. Dr. Vianna is also an accomplished liver transplant surgeon, making MTI’s liver program one of the best in Florida. He performs transplants with shorter operating times and minimal blood loss, which are indicators of better long-term outcomes.
