More than 119,000 men, women and children are on the national transplant waiting list. In Louisiana, more than 2,000 people are waiting for transplants. Transplantation gives hope to thousands of people each year. Through organ donation, you can help save and enhance the lives of these people. Each donor can save up to nine lives.
Since its inception, Ochsner’s Multi-Organ Transplant Institute has successfully performed more than 6,000 lifesaving liver, kidney, pancreas, heart and lung transplants in adult and pediatric patients. View patient stories here.
