Our Quality Outcomes

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 2018, our kidney transplant team performed 281 adult kidney transplants, and 13 kidney/pancreas transplants. This positions the Emory Kidney Transplant Program among the top 6 centers in the nation for kidney transplant volume.

Living Donor Program

  • We performed 94 adult kidney transplants from living donors in 2018. Living donation, especially when facilitated through the National Kidney Registry, can speed the process to find compatible donors for patients and reduce wait times.
  • Our Paired Donor Exchange Program is ranked as the fifth largest paired donor program in the country through the National Kidney Registry (NKR).

Survival Outcomes

  • Emory’s risk-adjusted three-year patient and graft survival rates for living donor kidney transplants are higher than our expected rates at 98.28% and 93.33%.
