Clinicians at CPMC's Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Program perform about 200 kidney transplants annually, and are among the country’s leaders in kidney paired donation expertise.



Kidney disease and transplant research is integrated into patient care at CPMC. Clinical trials may be conducted in the operating room, immediately post-transplant while patients are hospitalized, or several months post-transplant to combat a graft-threatening virus. The majority of trials in this area seek to improve transplantation outcomes with better drug treatments.  Clinical researchers at CPMC regularly prepare abstracts and publish manuscripts to describe the innovations, observations, and clinical trials they conduct in kidneytransplantation.
