Why choose Ohio State for kidney transplant?
Expertise: We perform more than 200 kidney transplants a year, making us one of the top 10 percent busiest programs in the country. In early 2020, the transplant team completed an 8-way living donor kidney transplant chain which bests our previous chain, a 6-way, initially performed in 2011. The 8-way is the largest, single-institution living kidney donor chain to date in Ohio, and one of only a handful in the United States.
Experience: Our Comprehensive Transplant Center has one of the largest organ transplant programs in the nation and is a preferred provider for all major insurance companies. Each year we perform nearly 600 kidney, liver, pancreas, combined kidney-pancreas, heart and lung transplants. Since our program started in 1967, we have performed 11,000 lifesaving organ transplants including 7,400 kidney transplants.
Kidney transplant research: We participate in clinical trials of new immunosuppressive drugs and antirejection therapies including novel cell therapy to prevent kidney transplant failure.
