Board certified transplant surgeons at BIDMC perform kidney, liver and pancreas transplants. Transplant surgeons are skilled in pre- and postoperative care of transplant patients including the management of immunosuppressive (anti-rejection) drugs and drug complications. Transplant surgeons work collaboratively with all members of the transplant team in the selection and care of transplant recipients and donors. Transplant surgeons also perform procedures for patients needing vascular access for hemodialysis or peritoneal kidney dialysis, general surgery in dialysis and transplant patients, and non-transplant hepatobiliary surgery.
