Houston Methodist surgeons performed our first kidney transplant in 1963, followed quickly by many firsts in heart, lung, liver and multi-organ transplants. Since then our program has grown tremendously. The Methodist J.C. Walter Jr. Transplant Center has transplanted more than 4,000 organs, including 462 in 2012, representing a new lease on life for thousands of patients. Houston Methodist outcomes are among the best in the country.
The Transplant Center is the most comprehensive center for transplantation in the Houston area offering superior organ failure management and transplantation for all organ types. For more information on a specific program please use the navigation at left.
