Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute

As one of the largest and most comprehensive adult and pediatric abdominal transplantation centers in the world, the Recanati/Miller Transplantation Institute (RMTI) at The Mount Sinai Health System is committed to outstanding patient care, research, and educational programs. Our transplant services for adults and children include kidney, liver, pancreas, and intestinal organ transplant. In addition, RMTI has one of the largest living donor programs in the United States. Through our Zweig Family Center for Living Donation, we provide the best in medical, surgical, and psychological care to living organ donors. Additionally, we provide comprehensive, personalized treatment and compassionate care to people with a wide variety of liver/bile duct and pancreatic diseases, including cancers affecting these organs.

We bring together a distinguished team of surgeons, physicians, and other healthcare professionals to support patients with end stage disease in every step of their care up to and including transplantation. RMTI team members view transplantation as one step in the continuum of patient care. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures that patients benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists, who understand their unique needs.

Having performed more than 5,500 liver, kidney, pancreas, and intestinal transplants over 40 years, we have a rich history of innovation and excellence in the field of organ transplantation. One of the key factors in our success is close collaboration between our physicians and the scientists who conduct state-of-the-art research here. It enables us to provide leading-edge technologies and the most up-to-date therapies to our patients, including individuals with complex medical needs. For example, RMTI researchers working side-by-side with our clinical teams have made great strides in increasing the eligibility of patients previously denied kidney / pancreas transplants due to medical conditions, such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV.

At RMTI, we offer a full spectrum of abdominal organ transplantation programs and services, including: adult and pediatric liver disease and transplantation, adult and pediatric kidney transplantation, adult pancreas transplantation and intestinal rehabilitation and transplantation.
