Surgery

Transplant surgery experience that is decades deep

We were the FIRST in Michigan to remove kidneys from living donors using minimally-invasive techniques.

Michigan Kidney Transplant Specialty Center

Our experience in transplant surgery is decades deep:  We were the first center in Michigan to remove kidneys from living donors using a minimally invasive laparoscopic technique in the 1990s.  We have been performing the live-donor nephrectomy procedure since then in our state-of-the-art facilities and have been internationally recognized for our expertise.

Our Kidney Transplant Specialty Center achieves excellent outcomes pre- and post- kidney transplant due to the collaborative efforts of our staff:  surgeons, nephrologists, nurse coordinators, social workers, dietitians and pharmacists.  We rank among the highest success rates in the country for kidney transplants.  To view up to date information, please visit the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) at https://www.srtr.org/transplant-centers/st-john-hospital-and-medical-center-misj/?organ=kidney&recipientType=adult&donorType
