Why Choose UPMC's Kidney Transplant Program?

Our multidisciplinary team is experienced in all aspects of advanced kidney disease and the care of transplant recipients and donors.

We provide personalized services for living donors. This includes a dedicated Independent Donor Advocate, who ensures that living donors understand the donation process and receive specialized support.

UPMC offers life-enhancing benefits to kidney transplant patients:

  • State-of-the-art surgical techniques — Our surgeons are experienced in the most advanced surgical techniques.
  • Paired donor exchange — This program allows living donors to donate a kidney despite incompatible blood matches. In paired donation, a donor and recipient are matched with another incompatible donor and recipient pair, and the kidneys are exchanged between the pairs.
  • Clinical research and trials — UPMC in Central Pa. participates in clinical trials and research. This gives patients access to leading-edge medication protocols, technology, organ recovery techniques, surgical techniques, and posttransplant care.
  • Integrated posttransplant care — We provide care for patients throughout the lifespan of the transplanted kidney. In coordination with local nephrologists, we offer comprehensive, multidisciplinary care to all our patients.
