Our doctors’ commitment to excellence has made Houston Methodist a transplant world leader.

Every transplant is a unique, lifesaving event that can powerfully affect organ recipients, donors and their families. Houston Methodist J.C. Walter Jr. Transplant Center is one of our six centers of excellence. We are dedicated to providing outstanding care, resources and support to help patients and their families face organ and tissue transplant, as well as advanced organ failure management.

We are one of the most comprehensive transplant centers in the United States. Our kidney-pancreas program is one of the fastest growing in the nation, and we are one of the few programs that offer islet and multi-organ transplants. The transplant center also offers direct access to state-of-the-art resources at Houston Methodist Hospital, named by U.S. News & World Report as one of the nation’s top 20 hospitals and for the fifth year in a row as the No. 1 hospital in Texas.

Left Ventricular Assist Device: Curtis’ Story

Diagnosed with congestive heart failure, Curtis Dumesnil became so sick he couldn’t breathe. The left ventricular assist device (LVAD) Houston Methodist doctors implanted vastly improved Dumesnil’s health and his quality of life, allowing him to travel, fish and start his own business. “It’s the smartest thing I ever did,” Dumesnil said. “I haven’t felt this good in years.”
