Using the most advanced techniques, our Transplant Surgery Department at UPMC has performed thousands of transplants. Our living kidney donation program provides donors and recipients with state-of-the-art care in a supportive environment.
If you think you have been in contact with someone who has Covid, or are experiencing Covid symptoms, please call our office ASAP at 877-778-6110. Please do NOT begin any form of treatment until you speak with someone at our office, as some treatments have shown to interact with post-transplant medications.
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.
