Army-Navy Transplant Service
The Army-Navy Transplant Service provides state- of-the-art specialty care to all DOD healthcare beneficiaries qualifying for organ transplantation. Patients may be referred from anywhere in the country, to include Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Medical care is provided on a personal level by a multidisciplinary team of highly qualified professionals. Each Board certified surgeon is supported by nephrologists, hepatologists, nurse coordinators, pharmacists, and social services all with years of experience in the field. The integrated within the service is the DOD's Histocompatibility and Immunology Laboratory and the Navy Regenerative Medicine Research facility on site. VA beneficiary patients may access the program via partnership through the Washington DC Veterans Hospital Nephrology Services. Patients who have undergone transplantation through the military have demonstrated superior success rates (graft survival and patient survival) compared with the national averages.
