About Thiago Beduschi

Thiago Beduschi, MD, is the director of the UF Health’s abdominal transplant program and a professor of surgery at the UF College of Medicine.

Dr. Beduschi attended medical school and completed a general surgery residency at the Lutheran University of Brazil in Canoas, Rio Grande do Sul. Thereafter, he relocated to Sao Paulo, to complete a liver transplant fellowship in the liver unit at Albert Einstein Hospital. Afterward, Dr. Beduschi moved to Indianapolis to pursue additional training in transplantation, completing an abdominal multi-organ transplant surgery fellowship at the Indiana University School of Medicine. During his time at Indiana University, Dr. Beduschi also completed an advanced fellowship in intestinal and multivisceral transplantation and studied genetically modified pigs in the IU Xenotransplant Research Lab.

Dr. Beduschi served as director of the living donor liver transplant program and transplant critical care fellowship program at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. He developed the hospital’s intestinal rehabilitation program and played a pivotal role in the development of the Miami Transplant Institute’s intestinal and multivisceral transplant program

Dr. Beduschi is one of the most experienced surgeons in multiviscerals and other types of multiorgan transplants globally.
