THE NAZIH ZUHDI TRANSPLANT INSTITUTE (NZTI) at INTEGRIS Baptist Hospital Medical Center
in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
NAZIH ZUHDI TRANSPLANT INSTITUTE (NZTI)
Founded as Oklahoma Transplantation Institute, 1984-1999
Renamed Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute, 1999
The years 1984-2000In founding this program, Dr. Zuhdi believed that Oklahomans had the right to have transplant procedures performed here and should not have to leave the state. The transplantation institute brought life-saving medicine to the Sooner State and has continued to pave the way with cutting-edge procedures.
We are 25 years old and we grew through progressive phases. NZTI’s entire foundation concept—hearts, piggyback hearts, kidneys, live-donor kidneys, heart-lungs, lungs, double-lungs, livers, live-donor livers, in-situ split livers, pancreases, and small intestines—for transplantation, medical components, research, and artificial circulatory support occurred during this period of its formation.
