The Multi-Organ Transplant Center at St. Vincent Medical Center

Ordinary miracles, everyday.

A life saved, a life made better. These are the lives that we seek to create at the Multi-Organ Transplant Center (MOTC). As specialists in kidney and kidney/pancreas transplantation we are proud to be grounded in a patient-focused philosophy that offers those seeking organ transplantation a second chance at a healthier life.

The Multi-Organ Transplant Center is a nationally recognized facility providing preliminary patient consultations, consistent intermediary physician communication and ongoing support ranging from financial consultation to post-transplant counseling.

What does that all mean? It’s simple. It means the best patient care from one of the best transplantation centers in the country.

The team has successfully performed thousand of transplants for:



• Hemodialysis for kidney failure patients—1962
• Encapsulated human islet cell transplant—1993
• Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy in Los Angeles— 1999

What we do at the Multi-Organ Transplant Center is about people. People like you. And people like us.

It has been said that we perform ordinary miracles everyday. If that includes successfully treating each patient’s disease to return them to a normal, healthy life, then we have truly succeeded.
