ATLANTA, Ga. (February 23, 2011)—Piedmont Transplant Institute, a service of Piedmont Hospital, welcomes transplant surgeon Matthew Mulloy, M.D., to its growing transplant team. Celebrating 25 years of service, Piedmont Hospital’s transplant program ranks among the top 16 percent of all transplant programs in the country based on total number of organ transplants performed.
“With the addition of Dr. Mulloy, Piedmont Transplant Institute is demonstrating its continued commitment to addressing the urgent need for organ transplant services closer to home in Georgia,” said Mark Johnson, M.D., medical director, Piedmont Transplant Institute. “Dr. Mulloy will be a part of an innovative team of 14 transplant physicians who are dedicated to providing the best transplant options and healthcare to patients with end organ illnesses in need of life saving organs.”
In the last 25 years, nearly 2,500 patients have been given a second chance at life thanks to the growing program. While new advancements in medical technology and procedures have helped make organ transplant more accessible to patients over the last few decades, availability of donor organs has remained low.
Dr. Mulloy comes to the Piedmont Transplant Institute from the University of Texas- Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas where he served as staff transplant surgeon. He also served on the transplant teams at Parkland Health and Hospital System, where he was Surgical Director of the Renal Transplant Program, and Dallas Children’s Medical Center.
A graduate of the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Ind., Dr. Mulloy completed his internship and residency at the University of Tennessee in Memphis, Tenn. He completed a fellowship in abdominal transplant surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in Birmingham, Ala. He is a member of the American Association for Transplant Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons. Dr. Mulloy is board certified in general surgery.
