Kidney Transplantation Program

Lurie Children’s (formerly Children’s Memorial Hospital) performed Illinois’ first kidney transplant in a child in 1964. Our Kidney Transplantation Program now ranks among the nation’s top kidney transplant programs dedicated to children. We perform the eighth highest number of pediatric kidney transplants in the country according to the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS).
