To refer a patient for transplant, call our 24-hour Referral Hotline: 1-800-643-1635 or fax referrals to: 504-703-2310.
The Ochsner Multi-Organ Transplant Institute provides consistent follow-up information to all referring physicians regarding each patient they direct to our care. Follow-up information is communicated in writing as well as by phone after a patient's transplant.
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.
Collaborating to Give Your Patients Specialized Care
Ochsner Health System would like to introduce Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes), a new program giving you and your patients access to highly specialized liver care. This program allows Ochsner liver specialists to share their expertise and advice with primary care physicians and other specialists on how to effectively treat patients with Chronic Liver Disease so they have better chances for success.
TeleECHO clinics are held once a month via Zoom (Cloud meeting space) and participants can join by video or phone. Each clinic consists of interactive didactic instruction followed by patient case presentations by participants. All participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback on case presentations.
If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact Chrisey Smith, Administrative Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Shobha Joshi, Program Director, email@example.com at 504-842-6736 for additional information.
