The Ochsner Multi-Organ Transplant Institute is recognized globally as one of the premier programs of its kind. We’re home to some of the world’s leading transplant surgeons and physicians, and our clinical and research excellence changes and saves lives. We are the busiest, most experienced transplant center in the Gulf South region, offering, for most patients, shorter wait times in addition to unparalleled care. Overall, Ochsner transplant patients do better, live longer and experience fewer complications than others around the globe. The multidisciplinary Ochsner transplant team’s successful completion of a domino liver transplant — one of only five performed in the U.S. annually — reflects the extraordinary skill and close coordination between multiple surgical teams.
A rarely performed domino liver transplant by Ochsner surgeons saved two lives — and created a unique human connection between Dr. Charles Williams (pictured) and Benny Capagnano.
