Our Clinics

Published On 07/11/2011

Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute, in partnership with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, operates two independent Outpatient Clinics: The Transplant Outpatient Clinic and the Center for Advanced Liver Diseases. 

Transplant Outpatient Clinic

Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute
Sherard Wing, First floor

901.516.9183

Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Transplant Outpatient Clinic provides pre and post-transplant care to kidney, liver and pancreas transplant patients.

Pre-Clinic

To be considered for transplant, you will undergo a full medical evaluation performed in the Pre-Clinic by our team of the transplant surgeons, hepatologists/nephrologists, pre-coordinator nurses, financial case managers, and social workers. The  tests required depend upon the specifics of your case. The surgeon reviews the results of this medical examination to further determine eligibility.

If you are approved, you will receive written confirmation and be listed with the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), which administers the only national patient waiting list. Once listed with UNOS, you’ll need ongoing evaluations at regular intervals to determine continual eligibility. Should an organ become available, the recipient is selected based on a defined set of criteria established by UNOS.

Post-Clinic

Once a transplant is performed, you will transition from the Pre-Clinic to the Post-Clinic. Our multi-disciplinary team continues to monitor your medical condition for as long as care is necessary. Follow-up care includes regularly scheduled evaluations, on-going immunosuppressive drug therapy, prescription refills and lab reviews.

Center for Advanced Liver Diseases

Methodist University Hospital
Sherard Wing, First floor
1265 Union Ave.

Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute officially opened the Center for Advanced Liver Diseases in 2011, with plans to locate it permanently in Methodist University Hospital. 

Our physicians are Board Certified in Transplant Hepatology and Gastroenterology and treat all forms of liver disease, specializing in Hepatitis C and cancers of the liver. Whether a patient needs pre-transplant evaluation, post-transplant follow-up or non-transplant care, our multidisciplinary team of surgeons, hepatologists, nurses and social workers will determine an individualized treatment plan.
