The Transplant Program at Toronto General Hospital, University Health Network (UHN), is the largest and most successful transplant program in North America and one of the top three transplant research centres in the world. Our world-renowned team, fueled by our ongoing pursuit of knowledge, cares for the sickest of the sick. Patients with the most complex and advanced organ damage are often referred here from across the country to become our patients for life. And they want to be treated here – because we have the life-saving expertise they need.
We’re constantly pushing the boundaries of science to make lives better. As part of Canada’s largest research and teaching hospital, our discoveries have become gold standards for care across the country and around the world.
Of course, the need for transplantation may always be a reality. But we truly believe that our research holds the key to unlocking the mysteries of life-threatening illnesses like diabetes, heart failure, lung disease and liver cancer – so that a transplant doesn’t have to be the last resort. It sounds like science fiction. But we’re closer than ever. With your help, we’ll get there.
