Kidney Disease affects millions of Americans and can lead to kidney failure or End-Stage Kidney (Renal) Disease (ESRD). The only two treatment options for patients with ESRD are dialysis or kidney transplantation. Kidney transplantation offers the best outcome to patients by improving the quality of life and providing many more years of productive life.
Our Surgeons perform approximately 100 kidney transplants annually making Upstate's kidney transplant program one of the most experienced kidney transplant programs in the upstate New York area. We have received the Bronze Level Award for organ donor and transplantation from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
