Transplant Rejection

Rejection of the transplanted organ can occur, especially in the first year after transplantation.

It is important to know that rejection does not usually mean loss of the transplanted organ. Rather, rejection simply means that the balance of the immune system and the organ has changed and that immunosuppression needs to be increased.

How is Rejection Diagnosed?

Rejection is usually diagnosed with a biopsy of the transplanted organ, and is treated either in the hospital or in the outpatient setting. Our patient treatment protocols and close outpatient follow-up after transplant allow for the early diagnosis and treatment of rejection if it should occur.
