Kidney and pancreas transplant surgery

Kidney transplantation gives hope to thousands of patients with chronic kidney failure. It offers freedom from dialysis and the ability to lead a more active, healthier life.

Sharp HealthCare's Kidney and Pancreas Transplant team uses the latest research, clinical trials and surgical techniques, as well as personalized drug therapy to meet your needs.

We specialize in both kidney and pancreas transplantation, offering kidney transplants from living and deceased donors.

An extraordinary level of care

A successful transplant requires many experts. Our program includes a team of specialists who provide the highest quality care to all patients. Transplant surgeons, kidney doctors (nephrologists), certified transplant nurse coordinators and transplant pharmacists work together with social workers, registered dietitians and financial coordinators to deliver the extraordinary level of care we call The Sharp Experience.
