Welcome to Transplantation Surgery and Immunology
Transplant surgery is evolving at a tremendous rate and Fletcher Allen in Burlington, VT, is at the cutting edge of clinical care. The spectacular success of organ transplantation over the last few decades has saved, lengthened, and immeasurably improved thousands of patient lives. The first organ transplant surgery at Fletcher Allen occurred on March 6th, 1972, with limited options for patients. Today, there are a variety of transplant surgery methods available, reflecting the rapid evolution of the field and the critical role of continuing research.
Transplant Surgery Options
We offer several surgical services and ensure coordination throughout the continuum of patient care:
Currently, Fletcher Allen Transplant Surgery provides several kidney transplant options: deceased/living donor transplant, high-risk/highly sensitized protocols and pediatric kidney transplant surgery. We also offer laparoscopic nephrectomy to living donors—a minimally invasive surgery with a shorter recovery time.
Additionally, we perform transplant surgery based on individual medical need: simultaneous kidney and pancreas, pancreas after kidney or pancreas alone. Pancreas transplants are generally performed on patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus who have secondary complications. Successful pancreas transplants result in normal glucose levels without insulin injections.
A major part of our clinical efforts are dedicated to liver transplant surgery and developing a liver transplant program with our experienced transplant surgeons. Transplant Surgery and Immunology at Fletcher Allen is also very active in cutting-edge research in Transplantation and Transplantation Immunology.
