Advancing research. Improving outcomes.

At UNC, our kidney transplant outcomes consistently top national averages. To date, UNC surgeons have performed kidney transplants on more than 1250 adults and 150 children from around the country.

UNC surgeons performed the first laparoscopic-assisted live-donor kidney removal procedure in North Carolina, which reduces recovery time, scarring, and post-operative pain for altruistic kidney donors. Today, nearly all live-donor procedures at UNC are performed using this least-invasive procedure.
