Meet our President-Elect and Program Chair for the 2019 Texas Transplantation Society Annual Scientific Meeting...
Tiffany Anthony, M.D., is the associate medical director of Southwest Transplant Alliance, where she serves as an organ procurement surgeon.
Prior to joining STA, Dr. Anthony started her career as a transplant surgeon at The Liver Institute at Methodist Dallas and then at Baylor University Medical Center (BUMC) for the last five years, where she specialized in the transplantation of liver, kidneys and pancreas. She served as the Director of the Robotic Donor Nephrectomy Program for living donor kidney transplantation and was a member of the living donor liver transplant team.
At BUMC, Dr. Anthony was a part of a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses and research investigators involved in a landmark uterus transplant clinical trail through Baylor Scott & White Research Institute. This work led to the first child born in the United States to a mother who received a uterus transplant. The team transplanted a uterus from a living donor, giving the woman the ability to carry her own child.
Dr. Anthony received her medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where she also completed her general surgery residency. Dr. Anthony completed a fellowship in research at the Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, and another fellowship in transplant surgery at the University of Chicago School of Medicine in Chicago.
She is the recipient of the 2017 Outlive Yourself Award, given each year by the Taylor’s Gift Foundation, a nonprofit organization that promotes organ donation.
