Excellence in Kidney Transplant Care
- Excellent outcomes: Rush kidney transplant patients have excellent outcomes. The transplant program at Rush is a leader in patient survival rates among transplant programs in Chicago, according to the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients.
- Personalized care: Our team members are focused on education, support and helping you learn how to manage your care before and after your transplant.
- Specialized care for complex cases: If you have a complex health history — including having HIV or hepatitis C — Rush can help. We specialize in the most complex transplants, performing many successful kidney transplants for people who have had similar histories.
- Follow-up care where — and when — you need it: A transplant is a major surgery that requires lifelong follow-up care. We make it easy for you to get that care with a number of convenient locations in Chicago and Oak Brook.
- Second opinion services: If you're looking for a second opinion, Rush offers second opinion services to help you explore all your treatment options for kidney disease and renal failure, including kidney transplant.
- Help finding a kidney donor: Rush is participating in a clinical study that offers a free kidney transplant app to help people find a kidney donor by allowing them to share their story and their need for a donor. Patients who use the app are 6.6 times more likely to find a kidney donor.
