Performing the Most Kidney Transplants in the Region
As the region’s most experienced kidney and pancreas transplantation program, RWJBarnabas Health offers compassionate and comprehensive care for adult and pediatric patients. Our Centers offer hope and a wide range of treatment options available at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Saint Barnabas Medical Center and satellite locations throughout New Jersey.
Pioneering Kidney Transplant
With a patient-centered approach, we aim to provide a caring environment matched with state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment capabilities. Our multidisciplinary transplant team guides patients through the process of deciding on transplant as a treatment option, understanding transplantation, finding a donor, and maintaining a healthy organ after transplant. Along with our established reputation for world-class renal and pancreas transplantation care, our department of transplant research continues to participate in clinical drug trials to investigate the latest anti-rejection medications available.
Living Donor Programs
The Living Donor Programs at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Saint Barnabas Medical Center give ordinary people the opportunity to do the extraordinary: save the life of another person by donating a kidney. By helping kidney transplant patients get off the wait list sooner—and by freeing up deceased donor organs for other people—living donors not only save two lives, they make a positive impact on the lives of countless others in the process.
Pediatric Transplant Program
Our pediatric nephrology services are aimed at serving families who are struggling with kidney and hypertensive disorders. The pediatric nephrology team includes dedicated, accomplished surgeons and specialists.
Celebrating the many success stories of our patients and their living donors, we are honored to be their partners in this incredible act of generosity.
