Transplant services

Liver and kidney failure are major public health issues often optimally treated by life-saving organ transplantation. Organ transplant surgery has saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals, and Geisinger has been providing lifesaving organ transplants since 1981.

Combining quality, excellence and the top transplant physicians and specialists, Geisinger is proud to be a leader in organ transplantation. We value being able to treat patients throughout our large service area, including central and northeastern Pennsylvania and south-central New York. From the first appointment through recovery and beyond, our dedicated team of professionals is here to support our patients and their families with the highest standard of care.

Our patients benefit from a comprehensive multi-disciplinary transplant team, which includes specially-trained surgeons, physicians, nurses, social workers, dietitians, pharmacists and financial counselors, as well as collaborating specialty providers, which include cardiologists, pulmonologists and urologists, among others. 

What you should know about transplant surgery 

  • We offer kidney and liver transplant surgery for patients with end-stage kidney and liver disease, including combined liver/kidney transplantation.  
  • We also perform complex hepatobiliary (e.g.  laparoscopic and open liver resection for tumors, bile duct repairs) procedures, and dialysis access procedures.
  • As part of our comprehensive care mission, we provide advanced care of liver and kidney failure both before and after a life-saving transplant.
  • While all transplant procedures take place at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, we offer pre- and post-surgery services at other locations including Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Wilkes-Barre and Geisinger-Grays Woods near State College.
