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.
