Kidney Program

Best in South Texas for Patient Survival

Our outcomes rank Best in South Texas for both patient and graft survival and exceed national expectations according to the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients. Since the inception of the Kidney Program in 1985, every patient referred benefits from our strong history of research, education, innovation, medical expertise and surgical excellence. Our team has performed over 1,300 kidney transplants, combined kidney and pancreas transplants, and living donor kidney transplants. Our physicians and staff are experts in their fields, offering patients quality care for their advanced specialized needs.  

We have a vibrant Living Donor Kidney Transplant program with options for paired exchange and living donor chains to decrease wait times and improve the quality of life for a maximum number of patients with end-stage kidney disease.

Our kidney transplant program is recognized as a designated Center of Excellence by some of the most comprehensive insurance carriers, including Aetna, Cigna LifeSource, LifeTrac and OptumHealth.
