Kidney Transplant Program

The Kidney Transplant Program at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, is a multidisciplinary program designed for the special needs of children and teens. If your child has kidney disease, it is not too early to consult with the experts at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. In fact, the Children’s Hospital Nephrology department is ranked among America's best in U.S. News Media Group's 2018-19 Best Children’s Hospitals survey. The program combines the expertise of pediatric nephrologists and pediatric kidney transplant surgeons on staff at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. Together, these staff members have vast experience performing living-donor and deceased-donor kidney transplants. 

Pediatric transplant specialists use a multidisciplinary approach to care, working closely with pediatric urologists, pediatric anesthetists and specially trained pediatric nurses, pre- and post-transplant coordinators, social workers, dietitians, a pharmacist and a child psychologist. A financial coordinator is also available to help families navigate their medical insurance requirements and identify other financial resources as needed.

For optimal convenience, patients are able to consolidate their visits to the hospital and meet with multiple pediatric specialists during a single day. All members of the Kidney Transplant Program meet weekly to discuss each child's unique needs and develop customized pre- and post-transplantation care plans for the best outcomes.

While surgical procedures are performed at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit, follow-up care with pediatric nephrologists are available at many of the Hospital’s convenient outpatient specialty centers including Canton, Clinton Township and Troy.
