The Ochsner Multi-Organ Transplant Center provides consistent follow- up information to all referring physicians regarding each patient they direct to our care. Follow- up information is communicated via written correspondence in all cases, in addition to phone conversations following a patient's transplant. The nature of the written correspondence correlates to the type of visit or procedure performed (i.e., initial clinic visit, routine follow up clinic visit, hospital discharge). All patients are eventually returned to the care of their referring/primary care physicians, with periodic follow up visits to Ochsner. The transplant team continues to monitor for transplant- related complications and regulates maintenance immunosuppression.
