Hospitals and Clinics operates the largest pediatric kidney
transplant program in Missouri and Kansas. The transplant program
complements the nationally recognized pediatric dialysis program and is a
key component of the Division of Nephrology,
which ranks as one of the top 6 programs in the country by U. S.
News and World Report.
Our multidisciplinary team works with referring physicians before,
during and after a transplant to ensure effective continuity of
care for pediatric transplant recipients and their families. We
have established an outstanding national reputation for patient
care and outcomes. Data obtained from the Scientific Registry of
Transplant Recipients (SRTR) provides evidence of pediatric patient
and graft (transplanted organ) survival rates at Children's Mercy
that exceed the national average.
