The Sentara Transplant Center is located at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. In its nearly 50 years of existence, the transplant center has been a part of nearly 4,000 transplants.
As a comprehensive solid organ transplant center, the transplant center is committed to providing value for the residents of Hampton Roads by offering patients in need of solid organ transplantation the best outcomes and superior customer service.
The center currently performs kidney, heart, pancreas and kidney/pancreas transplants. In fact, Sentara was the first in the region to perform kidney, heart and pancreas transplants.
Each of the organ transplant programs was established in accordance with the mission of Sentara Healthcare to improve the health status for the citizens of Hampton Roads.
Experienced surgeons demonstrate the laparoscopic procedure for removing a kidney from a healthy donor to transplant in a patient suffering from kidney disease.
