Who We Are

For over 40 years, University Health and UT Health San Antonio have partnered to provide lifesaving solid organ transplants for patients suffering from end stage organ failure. Faculty and staff members at University Transplant Center (UTC) are national leaders in their field and carefully study advancements in organ transplantation to ensure excellent service and care for our liver, kidney and lung patients. Our focus – restoring people to a better quality of life – proves its value as our patients survive and thrive with their new organs. Our research enriches medicine – our patients enrich their communities.

Our inpatient units are located inside University Hospital, and we follow patients in outreach clinics throughout Texas. In addition to transplantation, we offer many other consultation and disease management services including Liver and Pancreas Tumor Centers, Advanced Liver Disease Clinic, Pulmonary Hypertension Program and an Interventional Pulmonology Clinic. We also take pride in our robust research program that has assisted in building the future of organ transplantation.
