UCSF Kidney Transplant Program Ranks No. 1 in the Country for Transplant Volume
UCSF's Kidney Transplant Program has ranked number one in the country for transplant volume, according to the newest data just released by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR). The program, led by John Roberts, M.D., Chief of the Transplant Service and Division of Transplant Surgery at UCSF, transplanted a total of 355 adult and pediatric kidney patients from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013 (this includes living donor and deceased donor transplants). Established in 1964, UCSF's Kidney Transplant Program has performed more kidney transplants than any other hospital in the world. As a major transplant center for the West, UCSF's kidney team evaluates about 1,200 patients a year as potential transplant candidates.This was made possible by the remarkable efforts of the entire Kidney Transplant Program team who have worked tirelessly to make a difference in so many lives.
