Operating Room Resources
PNTB’s donation coordinators will work closely with your operating room scheduler to schedule a time for surgical recovery of organs. PNTB coordinators arrange for transplant surgeons from a transplant center to perform the organ recovery; however, we utilize hospital staff for the circulator, scrub nurse and anesthesiologist positions.
Multiple organ recovery can take anywhere from 3-6 or more hours to complete. PNTB coordinators will assist you with setting up your surgical suite in preparation for organ recovery, and will be available to answer any questions prior to bringing the patient to the operating room.
