Kidney transplant survival rates above the national average
Children’s Mercy is a national leader in pediatric kidney transplant outcomes. According to data from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR), pediatric patient and graft (transplanted organ) outcomes at Children's Mercy are among the nation’s best.
Although we see the most serious cases, the latest SRTR data shows that our 3 year hazard ratio—a figure that characterizes the risk of a transplant failing within 3 years of receiving a transplant—is the best nationally. With a hazard ratio value of 0.45 and 100% 3-year graft survival, this equates to an estimated 55% lower risk of a transplant failing at Children’s Mercy compared to a program with outcomes that meet the average of all pediatric kidney transplant programs in the country.
Our transplant team is happy to discuss this data and our expertise with you as you are selecting a care team for your child.
