Our Quality Outcomes & Care

Emory Transplant Center is committed to providing excellent clinical outcomes and delivering outstanding service and medical care to our patients. Our expertise, combined with our top ranked survival outcomes, allow us to provide patients with the highest level of experience and quality care possible.


In 2016, our kidney transplant team performed a total of 259 adult kidney transplants, and 21 simultaneous kidney pancreas transplants. This positions the Emory Kidney Transplant Program among the top 10 centers nationally for kidney transplant.

Living Donor Program

We performed 88 living kidney donor transplants in 2016. Living donation, especially when facilitated through the National Kidney Registry, can speed the process to find compatible donors for patients and reduce wait times.

In 2016, Emory’s Kidney Transplant Program ranked as the second largest paired donor program nationally through the National Kidney Registry (NKR).

Survival Outcomes

Emory’s risk adjusted patient survival rates for living donor kidney transplants at one-year and three-year are excellent at 97.77% and 98.68%.
