Nationally Recognized for Excellence in Outcomes
Our transplant program was one of the first established in the northeast, providing Pancreas transplant to adults and Kidney transplant to both adults and children.
We’ve been nationally recognized for excellence in patient outcomes. In fact, the success rates for all Upstate transplant programs are equal to, and in most cases exceed, or exceeds the national averages as reported by the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) and the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR). The Upstate Transplant Program maintains its record of successful outcomes despite treating some of the sickest and most challenging patients.
