About Our Kidney Transplant Program
The quality of our care is high because we tailor treatment to each individual. Legacy’s transplant team consists of surgeons, medical specialists, nurse coordinators, social workers and other staff members who provide superior, specialized expertise throughout the transplant process.
From careful pre-transplant monitoring to post-surgical care, Legacy’s strong commitment to continuous quality improvement creates excellent outcomes for transplant patients. Since its start, Legacy Transplant Services has been at the forefront of kidney transplantation. We are home to the first laparoscopic kidney donation in Oregon, and the only transplant program in Oregon to be a member of the Alliance for Paired Donation.
