We perform more than 500 kidney, liver, pancreas, combined kidney-pancreas, heart and lung transplants each year. Since our program started in 1967, we have performed more than 10,000 lifesaving transplants including 7,000 kidney transplants and over 900 kidney-pancreas transplants. We are also among the busiest kidney-pancreas centers in the world and the only adult transplant center in central Ohio. Our first combined kidney-pancreas transplant was performed in 1988.
Leading-edge treatments: We are one of the few sites in North America approved to process pancreatic islet cells for transplantation that may cure type 1 diabetes.
Kidney-pancreas transplant research: We participate in clinical trials of new immunosuppressive drugs and antirejection therapies.
