Robert Plews, MD, MS

Robert Plews, MD, specializes in kidney and pancreas transplantation, laparoscopic living donor nephrectomy, hepatobiliary surgery and vascular and peritoneal dialysis access surgery. He joins UC Health after completing a fellowship in abdominal transplant surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Heersink School of Medicine.

Dr. Plews has a thorough understanding of immunology, infectious disease and pharmacology to ensure the best outcomes for his transplant patients.

His approach to transplant is patient-centered—he is always anticipating, to the best of his ability, his patients’ needs in the perioperative and postoperative phases of their care.

He is an active, elected member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society—a national medical honor society where its members are selected based on merit, and demonstrate excellence in trustworthiness, character, scholarship and the doctor-patient relationship, among others.

“The fundamental purpose of science is the pursuit of truth, and in this pursuit lies hope for bettering the lives of all humanity,” Dr. Plews said as to what In Science Lives Hope means to him.  

Outside of work, Dr. Plews enjoys spending time with his family and is an avid outdoorsman and reader of classic American, European and Russian literature.
