Overview

During multi-organ transplant surgery, two or more diseased organs are replaced with healthy donor organs, usually from the same donor. The organs are transplanted during the same surgery, one at a time. Multi-organ transplants are relatively rare -- fewer than 1,300 were performed in the U.S. in 2021. Because the risks of a multi-organ transplant are generally higher than the risks of individual transplants, they require medical expertise and advanced surgical skills that are only available at hospitals like Duke. In 2021, we performed the most multi-organ transplants in the state, were in the top five for our United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS) region, and were in the top 10 in the nation.
