Volumes, Key Outcomes, and Statistics
Our average waitlist times are shorter.

As a leader in solid-organ transplantation with respect to experience and volume, UPMC is home to many of the world’s leading transplant experts.
To date, our team has performed:
- More than 4,200 kidney transplants, including more than 1,000 living-donor kidney transplants.
