About Our Kidney Transplant Program

Our surgeons perform nearly 200 kidney transplants every year, making Penn’s kidney transplant program the largest and most experienced kidney transplant program in the region. In May of 2013, The Penn Transplant Institute became the 14th institution in the country and the first in the region to perform 5,000 kidney transplants.

Additionally, our program has been awarded a prestigious Silver Level Award by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for our outstanding outcomes.
