With a combined total of more than 10,000 organ transplants performed, our team has the experience and expertise to provide patients with the best transplant experience possible.

The UF Health Shands Transplant Center uses a coordinated team approach to care with over 100 staff members dedicated to assisting our patients and their families through every phase of the transplant journey — from pretransplant to lifelong posttransplant care.
