Kidney Transplant and Dialysis Program
The Pediatric Kidney Transplantation and Dialysis Program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia provides comprehensive care for infants, children and adolescents diagnosed with kidney failure. Since the inception of the Program in 1992, we have performed 300 kidney transplants, with outcomes among the best in the nation.
Diagnosed with hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) at age 2, Caitlin's family knew a kidney transplant would be needed. Four years later, she received a kidney at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Transplant Center has met extensive quality criteria to be recognized as a Center of Excellence by OptumHealth and an Institute of Excellence by Aetna.
At the Kidney Transplant Program, our team members come from a variety of specialties throughout the hospital. That means your entire family will benefit from our multidisciplinary approach.
