Northwestern Medicine's Hispanic Transplant Program
Northwestern MedicineOrgan Donation and Transplantation February 24, 2014
The Northwestern Medicine® Hispanic Transplant Program began in 2006, with the mission of providing individualized and culturally sensitive care for Hispanic patients undergoing kidney, liver, pancreas and small bowel transplantation. The program is the first of its kind and consists of more than 20 bilingual professionals, including surgeons, physicians, a social worker, transplant clinical coordinators, a financial coordinator, a clinical research coordinator and other support staff, to best address every step of the transplant care process.
Below are two videos, one in English and one in Spanish, featuring Juan Carlos Caicedo, MD, transplant surgeon and director of the Hispanic Transplant Program, discussing the program’s importance and how it works to improve care for both patients and their families.
