Expertise in Kidney Transplantation
Experiencing a kidney transplant operation is, without question, an intensely personal experience—physically, emotionally, even intellectually. The quality of care you receive, and how that care is delivered, is critical to the success of that transplant.
Every kidney transplant patient who comes to Stanford Health Care for care is different. But one thing they all have in common is the personal—and personalized—care they receive here.
The quality of our care is high because we tailor treatment to each individual patient. We provide intensive education for patients, their families and caregivers before the procedure, and schedule more visits after surgery to measure treatments and progress.
This exceptional level of personal care has once again made Stanford Hospital's Kidney Transplant Program the only center in the nation to achieve statistically higher than expected results in both patient and kidney survival at the one- and three-year marks after transplantation.
The care we provide takes into consideration far more than the physical effects of the procedure. We know you, your family and caregivers will face challenges emotionally, too. And we want to ensure that you all have the full support of your transplant team, and access to all the resources at your disposal. That way, everyone involved can take every measure possible to deliver an uncommon degree of care, in order to achieve a successful outcome.
