About Ashraf M El-Hinnawi

As associate director of the UF Health Adult Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Program and a clinical associate professor in the division of transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery, my aim is to improve our transplant outcomes and our related services. I treat patients in need of liver, kidney and pancreas transplants. Initially the technical and medical complexity of transplant surgery drew me to the field. Since then, the constant driving force has been witnessing miracles happen in transplant and medicine because I love helping my patients improve their quality of life.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery before completing a general surgery residency from Jordan University of Science and Technology in Irbid, Jordan. Following my residency, I completed two fellowships in abdominal organ transplantation at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami and at The Ohio State University in Columbus.

I also serve as the director of the UF Health Living Donor Kidney Transplant Program to provide hope and life-saving treatment with our multidisciplinary approach to care. I work to expand organ donation from living and deceased donors, maximize organ utilization and minimize organ discard.

When I am not wearing multiple hats at UF Health Shands Hospital, I am spending time with my family and traveling.
