Extending lives in Atlantic Canada

The Department of Urology is proud to be a part of the QEII Health Science Centre's Multi-Organ Transplant Program (MOTP). This critical program provides kidney, liver, heart and pancreas transplantation services for all four Atlantic provinces. Our director of clinical trials, Dr. Joseph Lawen, works with the kidney transplant team to conduct between 80 and 100 kidney transplants each year.

To support organ and tissue donation, MOTP cooperates with each of the Atlantic provincial organ and tissue donation programs and the Regional Tissue Bank, which is located at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. In addition, MOTP is dedicated to professional and community education on organ and tissues donation and transplantation.
