A Second Chance at Life -- Barnabas Health Renal and Pancreas Transplant Division

Originally aired at our Living Donor Celebration -- An Evening in Honor of Our Living Donors for Their Selfless Gift of Love and Life, Tuesday, October 15th, 2013.The crisis in renal transplantation continues to grow as the number of patients on the waiting list exceeds the number of available organs. In response, the world-class Renal and Pancreas Transplant Division of Barnabas Health has created New Jersey's first and only Living Donor Institute. The Institute is designed to promote living donation as the best transplant option for patients with chronic kidney disease who are either on or approaching dialysis.Through the Institute, our team of surgeons, transplant physicians, nurse coordinators, dieticians, social workers and pharmacists is able to forge new opportunities for people who want to donate a healthy kidney to someone in need of a transplant.For more information on Barnabas Health Renal and Pancreas Transplant Division, visit www.transplantkidney.org
