Fort Worth, Texas
Full Time - Experienced
Founded in 1986, the Kidney Transplant Program at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth was the first kidney transplant in Tarrant County and helps give new life to patients from the Dallas-Fort Worth area and throughout the United States. Our busy kidney transplant program is growing and we are presently looking for another surgeon to join our existing surgeon, employed by our health system through Texas Health Physicians Group.
Texas Health Physicians Group includes more than 950 physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and medical professionals dedicated to providing safe, quality care for our patients. Through THPG, Texas Health Resources is more than just a network of hospitals – it is now a full health system with the opportunity to provide unparalleled healthcare coverage to North Texans. Patients benefit from improved safety, better outcomes and increased efficiencies that can happen when all parts of the health care system work in close collaboration.
Transplants are mainly kidney, but also include pancreas, arteriovenous fistula surgery. Texas Health Surgical Care currently has one transplant physician in the practice and is looking to expand. The practice offers advanced and minimally invasive surgical care.
The program does both living and deceased transplants, and completed 41 transplants last year. This year, they are on track to do 50.
Looking for someone who will have an office practice and do other surgeries (non-transplant) in the practice.
