To refer a patient for transplant, call our 24-hour Referral Hotline: 1-800-643-1635.
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 after a patient's transplant.
Patients will continue follow-up visits with their pulmonary/lung care team at Ochsner. The transplant team will continue to monitor for transplant-related complications and regulate maintenance immunosuppression. Annual updates will be sent to referring providers about the patient’s health status.
