Why Choose Us
The Kidney Transplant Program at UI Health is one of the largest and most experienced kidney transplantation programs in Chicago. Our teams of experts work closely with you through every stage of your journey — from pre-transplant care to postsurgical monitoring. We are committed to providing patients and their families personalized treatment options for the best surgical outcomes.
Our kidney transplant surgeons provide care to both children and adult patients, and we have expertise in a number of transplantation procedures, including living donor transplantations and transplants for high-risk patients. We also are proud to offer paired kidney exchange — or "kidney swap" — for patients with donor blood-type incompatibilities.
UI Health is focused on providing access to advanced care to our diverse community, and we are one of Chicago's leaders in providing kidney transplants to Hispanic and African-American patients.
