Pediatric Kidney Transplant Surgery

At the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Johnson University Hospital, the only dedicated pediatric hospital in the state of New Jersey performing pediatric kidney transplant surgeries, our team includes transplant surgeons and pediatric nephrologists with many years of experience in the care of pediatric kidney transplant patients. Because it is a research center and teaching hospital, RWJUH also participates in clinical studies to continuously improve the quality of care for our patients.

Successful kidney transplantation is the goal for patients with irreversible kidney failure. When patients are promptly evaluated for transplantation, dialysis can be avoided or the time on dialysis minimized. Successful kidney transplantation in pediatrics requires the expertise and dedication of a team of transplant professionals, as well as the commitment of the patient and his/her family.

Early Diagnosis

With early diagnosis and state of the art care, kidney failure can be prevented. If not, renal replacement therapy can return the child to good health and a happy, productive life.
