Transplant Rehabilitation

  • As leaders in the field of organ transplantation, Ochsner Health System’s transplant experts draw upon years of experience to continuously develop new and improved treatments for our patients.

    Our expert rehabilitation team works closely with Ochsner Health System’s transplant teams to ensure that all required medical care is properly delivered. Our team consists of physicians; rehabilitation nurses; physical, occupational, speech and cognitive therapists; psychologists and neuropsychologists; and other clinicians who work together to treat the problems that are hindering recovery after transplant surgery. Ochsner Rehabilitation Hospital provides a continuum of care for organ transplant recipients who have severe weakness, difficulty walking, or other limiting conditions after surgery. Our team also reinforces patient and family education as well as medication management.

    An individualized care plan is designed for the transplant recipient in order to maximize function and restore their quality of life.
