The Transplant Institute at Research Medical Center offers a nationally-recognized kidney transplant program and the area’s only simultaneous pancreas/kidney transplant procedure.
The Transplant Institute serves the entire Region, including the Kansas City area, Joplin, Springfield, St. Joseph, Wichita and Topeka. In 2012 the Transplant Institute earned the Medal of Honor for Organ Donation from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Over the past 30 years, The Transplant Institute at Research Medical Center has earned a reputation for technical excellence, advanced research and excellent patient outcomes. We have performed more than 1,000 transplants under the leadership of Daniel Murillo, MD, who has served as medical director of the kidney and kidney/pancreas transplant programs at Research Medical Center since 2003.
We maintain a dedicated transplant unit and offer a living donor transplant coordinator. We also actively participate in multi-center drug studies and the Midwest Transplant Network.
