The Transplant Institute
The Kidney Transplant Program at Research Medical Center has been awarded a Silver Award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services! This award places our program in the top 21% of all the evaluations completed throughout the nation. Each transplant program is measured using three categories:
- 1 Year Graft Survival After Transplant
- Deceased Donor Transplant Rate
- Mortality Rate After Being Placed on Waitlist
The Transplant Institute offers patients a second chance at life.
Over the past 30 years, the Research Medical Center Transplant Program has earned a reputation of technical excellence, advanced research and success in kidney and pancreas transplants. The Transplant Institute has completed hundreds of successful transplants under the direction of Daniel Murillo, MD, accredited transplant surgeon.
We are committed to building The Transplant Institute into the most active, most successful center in the Midwest, offering the region’s only simultaneous pancreas/kidney transplant program. Research Medical Center maintains a dedicated transplant unit and offers an onsite living donor transplant coordinator. We also actively participate in multi-center drug studies.
