A kidney transplant can offer children who face kidney failure a chance for a healthy life. Our pediatric transplant specialists perform kidney transplants in infants, children, and adolescents with kidneys from both deceased and living donors. Our goal is to get your child back to their normal routine and the activities they enjoy as quickly as possible.
Our Survival Rates Are Among the Nation's Best
We successfully perform kidney transplants in complex cases that other centers have declined. Although we take on some of the toughest challenges, data from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients -- a national database of transplant statistics -- show that our one- and three-year survival rates after kidney transplantation are among the best in the nation. This reflects our expertise and commitment to our young patients.
Kidney transplant surgery is performed at Duke Children's Hospital and Health Center. Pre- and post-transplant appointments take place at our kidney transplant clinic within Duke Children's.
