Kidney Transplant Outcomes
Our 1- and 3-year survival rates for kidney recipients meet or exceed expected results. Our 1- and 3-year graft survival rates (which indicate whether a transplanted kidney is working) are also excellent.
The United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) tracks outcomes for all U.S. transplant centers, including Henry Ford Transplant Institute.
Thanks to our active living donor kidney transplant program, you may receive a transplant within 1 to 2 months. The average wait for a kidney from a deceased donor at Henry Ford is 36 months, roughly half the national average (70 months).
