Transplant Institute

Reasons for hope
Experience, patient-focused, groundbreaking medicine.

The Allegheny Health Network Transplant Institute is a nationally recognized organ transplantation program that has provided patients with high-quality, innovative and compassionate care for decades. Our transplant patients experience survival rates that are among the best in the country, and our heart and liver transplant programs have the best one- and three-year outcomes in the western Pennsylvania region, according to the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR). 

We strive to continually evolve the care we provide to you by conducting research, creating and participating in clinical trials and utilizing the latest treatments and techniques for organ failure. 

Kusum Tom, MDThe Transplant Institute's philosophy is that teamwork produces the most success. Our doctors from various specialties collaborate to ensure that your treatment plan is molded to your specific needs, condition and circumstances. 

We understand how overwhelmed you may feel after being told you have end-stage organ disease. This is why, day in and day out, our staff will work closely with you and your family to provide you with support, resources, education and many comforting hands. We want to help ease you through the transplant process and help you to feel secure with your decisions. 

At the Transplant Institute, we give you not only a reason to hope, but also a reason to have confidence that your life and health can be better. Not just for one day, but for many days to come.


Allegheny Health Network is proud to support The Center for Organ Recovery Education (CORE), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting organ donation, education and research for the purpose of saving and improving the quality of life through organ, tissue and corneal transplant.

CORE is one of 58 federally designated agencies in the United States known as a not-for-profit organ procurement organization (OPO). It plays a pivotal role between potential donors and patients awaiting transplantation. In addition to talking with families about the opportunity to donate, CORE coordinates the surgical recovery of organs, tissue and corneas, as well as the computerized matching of donated organs and placement of corneas.
