We urge you to contact us directly for consultations and referrals. Our specialists are available 24/7 to answer your questions and to assist you in providing seamless care in your referrals to us. Contact information for each organ type is available using the links at left on this page.
It is our team's privilege to care for the patients you refer to us. We make every effort to provide the highest quality care and outcomes so that these patients can return to your care and the healthy living they seek.
We know that the success of our patients is assured when we work with their local care providers at every stage of the transplant process. We view you as a member of our organ transplant team. We link you to information about your patient's care through a tool we call UI CareLink™, which accesses our electronic medical record.
Recently one of our partners—Fadi Yacoub, MD, internist and nephrologist with Internist Associates of Iowa and Medical Director of Mercy Dialysis and Mercy Intensive Care Center—bravely asked the question: Can an otherwise healthy 79-year-old dialysis patient be a candidate for a kidney transplant? Read the remarkable results.
As an academic medical center, we are committed to a practice that incorporates the latest procedures and therapies to assure successful patient outcomes. Some of those breakthroughs have been made by members of our own staff as part of their active agenda of clinical and basic science research.
We focus our educational efforts on our patients, our training staff, and our peers. We invite you to make use of our on-line materials in your own practice.
