The Renal and Pancreas Transplant Division at Saint Barnabas Medical Center

The Renal and Pancreas Transplant Division at Saint Barnabas Medical Center offers compassionate and comprehensive transplant care for adult and pediatric kidney patients. Our nationally respected team of transplant physicians and surgeons, working closely with experienced registered transplant coordinators, social workers and support staff, offers hope and an increasing number of transplant opportunities to many whose medical conditions previously prevented transplantation as an option. It is one of the largest kidney transplant programs in the country, performing more than 300 transplant surgeries each year. The Living Donor Institute at Saint Barnabas Medical Center offers an increasing number of innovative living donation techniques available at only a few of the world’s leading transplant centers.

With a patient-centered approach, we aim to provide a caring environment with state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment capabilities. Our multidisciplinary transplant team guides patients through the process of deciding on kidney 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 transplant, our department of transplant research continues to participate in clinical drug trials and investigate the most current anti-rejection medications available.
