The Kidney Transplant Program at UW Medicine is celebrating the milestone of 204 kidney transplants performed in 2018. This unprecedented achievement is accompanied by the best national outcomes at 3 years post kidney transplantation. These accomplishments identify the UW Kidney Transplant Program as one of the premier kidney transplant programs in the United States which contributes to the United Network for Organ Sharing recognizing the program as a top 10 program nationally. 

We would like to send our appreciation to the hard working, dedicated and enthusiastic transplant team, and to the support of UW Medicine leadership for this amazing achievement. We look forward to many more accomplishments in the future.
