Transplant success since 1969

We performed our first kidney transplant in 1969 and our first simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplant in 1999. We are also one of the few transplant programs in the U.S. to practice steroid minimization after patient discharge. Tapering off corticosteroids within four weeks after surgery reduces side effects such as diabetes, weight gain, osteoporosis, bone fractures and patient morbidity.

Our nephrology program ranks No. 46 among the nation's top 50 in U.S. News & World Report's Best Hospitals 2017-18.
