The Division of Transplantation at UI Health is a pioneer in the field of transplantation, and many procedures widely used today were first established at UI Health, including the first adult-to-adult living donor liver transplant in the United States and the world's first robotic donor nephrectomy for a living-donor kidney transplant. Our transplantation outcomes are among the most successful in Chicago, and we take pride in serving patients that frequently are refused transplantation at other medical centers due to antibody levels, blood-type incompatibilities, or body mass index.
