Kidney Transplant Surgery

About Transplant Surgery


The Organ Transplantation Center at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, in collaboration with Hackensack University Medical Center, now provides patients with a comprehensive, convenient and unified approach to patient care. Our team includes James Lim, M.D., FACS, board-certified surgeon at Hackensack University Medical Center, who provides pre-transplant evaluations at his Neptune, NJ office.

Program Director and Chief of Transplant Surgery and Organ Transplantation at Hackensack University Medical Center since 2013, Dr. Lim leads a team of specially-trained transplant nurses and health care professionals. This transplant team partners with patients, families, and referring physicians every step of the way - from consultations, to transplant selection, to disease management before transplant, throughout surgery and follow-up treatment.

Continuity of care and follow-up are key parts of transplant services. We are now able to provide our patients with comprehensive, personalized education on monitoring their condition, including administration of anti-rejection medications, how to recognize the signs of infection or rejection, and returning to a more normal lifestyle.
