Sentara Kidney Transplant Outcomes Among the Best in Virginia
Sentara continues to lead in the region with strong patient outcomes in our kidney transplant program. We are helping patients with kidney disease live longer and live well. Sentara is ranked by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) as one of the top hospitals in the state of Virginia and the country for adult kidney transplant success rates.
Not all transplant centers are created equal. Sentara Norfolk General Hospital has performed more than 80 kidney transplants in 2017 alone. New methods in patient care, recipient pairing, and living donor transplants sets Sentara apart in the region and the state.
Why is Sentara leading?
- Taking services to our patients with remote clinics
- Development of NKR (Paired Exchange-Living Donor) Program
- Improved post-operative pain control for donors with less narcotics use
