Kidney Transplant Options

The Barnes-Jewish Hospital Advantage

Barnes-Jewish Hospital offers more transplant options than any other center in the region – and has one of the lowest rejection rates in the world.
The Barnes-Jewish and Washington University kidney transplant program is where patients come for the latest innovations, including new surgical techniques that make living kidney donation much easier on the donor, with less pain and faster recovery.

Thanks to ongoing advances, there are many options available to kidney patients pursuing transplant at Barnes-Jewish, including:
Some patients choose deceased donor transplantation, while others opt for a living donor transplant. For patients who have a living donor who is willing to donate but their tissue and/or blood type doesn’t match, the Transplant Center offers options including an innovative kidney exchange program that pairs donors with patients all across the country. Regardless of the option they ultimately choose, patients at Barnes-Jewish can count on receiving the support and resources they need to make the right decision.
