At Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, we have one of the leading kidney transplant programs in the country. We are the most experienced kidney transplant team in New England, and our physicians use a collaborative approach that has resulted in some of the best outcomes in the country, according to the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients. We coordinate your care and group your appointments to save you time. You always receive a personalized treatment plan at Lahey that includes the best care options for you.
There are several kidney transplant options, including:
- Living donor kidney transplantation
- Deceased donor kidney transplantation
- Paired exchange programs for incompatible donor-recipient pairs
If you are on dialysis or approaching dialysis, it is important to ask your nephrologist (kidney specialist) to set up an appointment with us. Together, we can begin to look at the possibility of a kidney transplant. Having a functioning kidney is a better long-term solution for end-stage renal disease. It is much more cost-effective compared to dialysis.
