We’re Here To Help
The Henry Ford Transplant Institute is happy to welcome former Detroit Medical Center kidney transplant patients to one of the Midwest’s most experienced and comprehensive kidney transplant programs. Here you’ll find a range of options, including living-donor transplants.
Minimally invasive procedures, including robot-assisted procedures for donor and recipient, mean you’re back on your feet faster with pain, lower risk of infection and substantially less scarring than traditional procedures.
High quality care that’s personal
Even though Henry Ford accepts more high-risk patients than many other programs, our rates of long-term patient and kidney survival compare well with other programs.
Personalized care is offered by Henry Ford’s nurse coordinators, who guide you through every step of the transplant process. You can also connect with monthly support groups serving those with kidney disease or diabetes.
Henry Ford is a center of innovation. Our doctors pioneered a breakthrough technique that preserves donor kidneys longer, giving surgeons more opportunities to perform minimally invasive robot-assisted procedures. As a nationally recognized research institution, Henry Ford also regularly presents you the opportunity to participate in clinical trials and research into areas like infection prevention or reduced organ rejection.
