Living Donor Kidney Transplant
Recognized by U.S.News & World Report magazine as one of “America's Best Hospitals” caring for patients with kidney disorders, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center's Comprehensive Transplant Center is home to one of the largest, most experienced kidney transplant programs in Ohio—as well as one of the largest, most experienced in the nation. We performed our first kidney transplant in 1967, and since then we have been a nationally recognized leader in kidney transplantation. Ohio State’s transplant surgeons perform more than 250 kidney transplants per year.
In addition to this surgical expertise, Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center successfully performs complicated procedures, such as the six-way synchronized kidney transplant swap that took place in 2011—the first and largest to date in Ohio. Based on the success of this “domino transplant” that provided new, healthy kidneys to six deserving patients, Ohio State plans to continue pioneering synchronized kidney transplant swaps in the future.
Our Comprehensive Transplant Center is under the leadership of nationally renowned transplant surgeon Robert Higgins, MD, who is a former president of the United Network for Organ Sharing and comes to Ohio State from Rush University in Chicago.
