INTEGRIS Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute

About the Transplant Institute

INTEGRIS Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute was founded in 1984 by director Nazih Zuhdi, M.D. "In 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," said Stanley Hupfeld, former INTEGRIS Health president and CEO. "The transplant institute brought life-saving medicine to the Sooner state and has continued to pave the way with cutting-edge procedures."
