As pioneers in the field of solid organ transplantation, UPMC‘s transplantation experts draw upon their breadth of experience to develop new and improved treatments for our patients.
Experts at the UPMC Rehabilitation Institute are no different.
Our rehab experts provide a continuum of care for solid organ transplant recipients who have severe weakness, walking problems, or neurologic problems that are hindering recovery after transplant surgery.
These same experts work closely with the transplant surgery teams to ensure that all medical and surgical care is delivered. If a medical problem develops, the transplant surgeons are always available for consultation.
Our team focuses on patient education for immunosuppressant medications and other tasks that may be new for the transplant recipient and their families.
As one of the leading rehabilitation programs in the United States, transplant patients at the UPMC Rehabilitation Institute have access to state-of-the-art technology and comprehensive services to help assist with recovery.
Technologies, such as those in the Robotics and Gaming Center, help you re-learn daily tasks so you can live a more independent life after your rehabilitation stay.
