Our physicians, nurses, counselors and surgeons work with patients and their families to determine eligibility for transplantation, and follow them through post-op care to ensure the transplanted organ is functioning properly. We have been a pioneer in organ transplantation for more than 50 years. In 2013, we became the fourteenth institution in the country and the first in the region to perform 5,000 kidney transplants.

The Penn Transplant Institute consistently meets or exceeds the national average in all organ transplants. These superior outcomes are a result of the combined efforts of multiple clinical departments across Penn Medicine and a unique, multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of end-stage organ disease.
