Transplantation Medicine

Our practice has a long and distinguished history in renal transplantation.  The first renal transplantation in the tri-state area (New York- New Jersey- Connecticut) was performed at our center in October 1963.  As of December 2012, 4000 kidney transplants have been performed, including 240 renal transplants during 2005-06 (165 deceased donor transplants and 75 living donor transplants).  Our success rates following renal transplants meet or exceed national success rates.  The national organization that maintains survival statistics of organ transplants in USA reported that our one year patient survival rate was 97.67% (National Patient Survival Rate: 95.49%) and our one year transplant survival rate was 94.03% (National Renal Transplant Survival Rate: 91.62%).
