The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s Comprehensive Transplant Center is home to one of the largest kidney transplant programs in the country.
Why choose Ohio State?
We perform more than 200 kidney transplants a year, making us one of the top 10-percent busiest programs in the country. Since our first kidney transplant in 1967, we have performed more than 6,100 kidney transplant surgeries. In September 2011, we completed a six-way, single-institution transplant, the first and largest to date in Ohio, and one of only a handful in the United States.
Our Comprehensive Transplant Center has one of the largest organ transplant programs in the nation. We perform nearly 250 kidney, liver, pancreas, combined kidney/pancreas, heart, lung and bone marrow transplants each year. Since our program started in 1967, we have performed more than 8,000 lifesaving transplants.
We participate in clinical trials of new immunosuppressive drugs and antirejection therapies. Our current standard of care is using prednisone-free immunosuppressive medications, a regimen available to only about one quarter of all patients in the United States at this time.
