About Our Kidney Transplant Program

Our nationally recognized Kidney Transplant Program, within Jefferson Health’s Transplant Institute, has one of the highest transplant survival rates in the nation.

At Jefferson Health, living donors and recipients benefit from laparoscopic and robotic donor surgery, which typically results in smaller scars, less pain and faster recovery. Throughout the entire living donor kidney transplantation process, we provide ongoing support and guidance. Both donors and recipients are assigned a personal transplant coordinator and have continued access to our dedicated team of live donor advocates, financial coordinators, social workers and medical specialists, as part of our “Patient for Life” commitment.

To improve the odds of matching, we partner with multiple paired donation registries, including the most successful paired exchange registry in the nation: the National Kidney Registry.
