Quality Outcomes

The Emory Transplant Center is proud to share with you the continued excellent outcomes of our Kidney Transplant Program. For calendar year 2014, the Emory team performed a total of 233 adult kidney transplants. Of the 233 kidney transplants, there were: 83 living donor transplants and 150 deceased donor transplants. These numbers reflect the highest volume our program has performed in a given year since its inception, and establishes Emory’s Kidney Transplant Program among the top centers nationally relative to volume.

  • Emory’s risk adjusted patient and graft survival rates for both deceased and living donor transplants at one year remain higher than expected at 98.08% and 95.06%.
  • Our three-year combined patient survival rate also exceeds expected at 93.33%, with our three-year graft survival rate being statistically higher than expected at 89.48% (p<0.05).

  • We are also proud to report that the Emory Transplant Center as a whole ranked 7th among transplant programs across the nation based on adult transplant volume. This was derived from the 441 adult transplants performed by Emory Transplant Center in CY14.
  • Our experience coupled with continued excellent outcomes among all solid organ programs makes the Emory Transplant Center a leading transplant center in the southeast and in the nation.
