International Transplantation Services at Mount Sinai

The Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute at Mount Sinai is one of the world’s largest adult and pediatric transplant centers, and home to a team of highly-skilled abdominal transplant doctors. Patients from all over the world travel to New York for access to our living donor transplant program, which is among the largest in the United States.

“We have a long tradition of excellence in the transplantation of the liver, kidney, pancreas, and intestine, and one of the largest abdominal transplant experiences in the world, with over 5,000 patients transplanted to date,” says Sander Florman, MD, Director of the Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute. “We are also recognized as a leading center for hepatobiliary surgery, especially in the treatment of liver tumors.”

The Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute hosts patients from all over the world—many from South America and the Middle East—who predominantly come to us for living donor liver transplantation and complex liver surgery (for tumors). In addition, we are widely-renowned for transplantation in the following areas:

  • Adult and Pediatric Liver
  • Intestinal
  • Kidney
  • Pancreas

Catering to Our International Clientele

The Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute strives to provide the most convenient and comfortable experience possible for our international patients. In addition to the hospitality services Mount Sinai offers patients from abroad (including translation services and travel assistance), we are pleased to provide the ten-bedroom Transplant Living Center (TLC), located just five blocks from the hospital for patients and their families (competitive rates are $60/night; negotiable for longer stays). The TLC allows our post-operative transplant patients and their families to heal in a supportive environment. 

The Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute’s goal for international patients is to provide the most effective, efficient, and compassionate care possible.
