University of Utah Health's kidney transplant program has been caring for patients with end-stage renal disease since 1965. In 1977, the program became a Medicare-approved center. Since that time we have continued to do a high number of adult and pediatric kidney transplants with survival rates higher than the national average.

We know that patients have unique needs. We provide different types of kidney transplantation to best serve patients and their families. We offer:

Our kidney transplant program takes a multidisciplinary approach, providing patients access to a team of health care professionals who are experienced in all medical and surgical aspects of transplantation, including board-certified adult and pediatric transplant nephrologists.
