Weill Cornell Medicine, in partnership with NewYork-Presbyterian and the National Kidney Registry, performed its first transplant chain on Valentine’s Day 2008.

Since then, Weill Cornell Medicine has become a national leader in performing these types of transplants while having the highest percentage of incompatible pairs transplanted in the country for these types of transplants.

As of 2018, we have performed over 200 living donor kidney transplants through the National Kidney Registry, and we look forward to providing many more patients with this opportunity for living donor kidney transplantation in the coming years.  Our transplant program is also a site for the OPTN/UNOS Kidney Paired Donation Pilot Program.

For the most up-to-date statistics on the number of transplants performed, please visit the National Kidney Registry website.
