Ochsner’s Transplant Institute offers a 2-year American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) accredited surgical program. One fellow will be accepted to the program each year.

Louisiana’s first liver transplant was performed at Ochsner in 1975. Since that time, more than 3500 adult and pediatric liver transplant operations have been performed. Since 1984, over 3200 kidney and kidney-pancreas transplants have been performed.

Our fellowship was started in 2016. We have successfully trained United States trained surgeons as well as international surgeons.

The case mix provides the fellow with an excellent clinical experience in the complex management of this specialty.

Fellows will also gain experience in pediatric liver and kidney transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery.
