Children's Mercy 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 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.
Kidney transplant survival rates
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.
