Transplant Surgery Team

Pediatric renal transplantation is a highly specialized field dealing with complex patients, some with multiple medical issues. Our multidisciplinary team brings extensive expertise in the arena of pediatric renal transplantation, with more than 50 years of combined experience in pediatric transplantation. Our program has specialized in transplantation for extremely small infants (~ 10 kg or more) and is well-versed in dealing with complex urologic reconstructions and congenital anomalies, as well as the intricacies of dialysis access in this complex population. Our transplant program is actively recruiting new surgeons to continue to transplant our pediatric patients.

A very important part of our team is a dedicated nursing staff. With many years of expertise, our nurses understand the difficulty that chronic illness presents to the patients and their families. They play a critical role in providing education, guidance and support of patients and families through the entire process. Good nutrition is important to optimal health. Our pediatric nutritionists, who have expertise in chronic kidney disease, are another important part of our team. Our dedicated and enthusiastic child life specialists work with our patients in the hospital. Pediatric urology, radiology, anesthesiologist and physicians in all other pediatric specialties are also available for consultation and are integrated into the patient’s care as needed.
