Since starting our program in 2000, the Transplant Surgery Department at UPMC Pinnacle has performed more than 1,200 transplants. Our experienced transplant surgery team is expert in the most advanced techniques for transplant. Our living kidney donation program provides donors and recipients with state of the art care.
Our transplant services are provided in a supportive environment by a multidisciplinary team experienced in all aspects of advanced kidney disease and the care of transplant recipients and donors. Our staff includes experienced transplant surgeons and nephrologists, as well as a support team that includes transplant coordinators, social workers, financial/insurance coordinators, pharmacists, nurse practitioners and dietitians. All our staff are dedicated to providing continuity of care for patients, donors and families.
We provide special services for living donors, including a dedicated Independent Donor Advocate, whose role is to ensure that living donors understand the donation process, have had their questions answered, and get the specialized support and consideration they deserve.
