It's looking like another bright year for the Multi-Organ Transplant (MOT) Program.

The program is projecting 540 transplants for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016, which would be a new record total. The current record of 535 transplant surgeries came in the year ending March 31, 2015.

"This propels us into the ranks of the top transplant programs internationally, and we are the largest program in Canada," says Dr. Atul Humar, Medical Director of the MOT Program at UHN.

"But it is not just the experience we have in doing so many transplants. Our outcomes exceed international standards even though we take on some of the most complex cases."
