About Our Kidney Transplant Program
The transplant program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is one of the most experienced, innovative, and established programs in the country.
NewYork-Presbyterian, in cooperation with the Rogosin Institute, established the first kidney transplant program in New York. We’ve since developed the largest kidney transplant programs in the country, where we provide advanced care based on the latest transplant advances for adults and children.
Our centers are home to two of the biggest living donor kidney transplant programs, with expanded living donor kidney options that make this lifesaving operation accessible to more people. We are also one of the few institutions offering kidney transplants for patients who would normally reject the donated kidney, using a process called plasmapheresis plus medications to reduce antibody levels in the recipient’s blood.
Our world-renowned transplant physicians are able to achieve excellent outcomes, while caring for this very complicated and complex patient population. They are also leaders in research to developing innovative protocols ways to optimize transplanted kidneys organs and improve patient survival.
