Mayo Clinic’s Transplant Programs Rank High for Survival Rates

By suzannerferguson

Mayo Clinic’s transplant programs were recently recognized as the largest provider of transplants in the United States. A national database of transplant statistics, the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR), ranked Mayo Clinic’s transplant programs in Arizona, Florida and Rochester statistically better than expected in terms of patient and graft survivals at the repoorrted time points of one month, one year and three years. In 2014 alone, there were 1,132 solid organ transplants performed.

Being ranked "statistically better than expected" is considered to be significant for transplant programs, according to David Douglas, M.D., Transplant Hepatology, director of the Transplant Program on Mayo Clinic’s Arizona campus.

Only a small number of transplant centers earn the ranking and Mayo has received the ranking across all three of its campuses.
