A successful kidney transplant depends on appropriate evaluation of the kidney recipient, expertise in the surgical procedures required to transplant the kidney and on-going monitoring after transplant to prevent kidney rejection or infections.
At Cedars-Sinai, we report our data to the United Network for Organ Sharing, a regulatory organization for organ transplants. Information for hospitals in the United States performing transplants is shared with the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, which compares and publishes information about patient characteristics, waiting lists, and outcomes by hospital.
The Cedars-Sinai patient and graft survival data for adult and pediatric transplant patients is presented below by donor type (deceased vs. living) and compared to the national estimated survival rate, and the rate which would be expected given the characteristic mix of the recipient and donor (age, disease and blood type, etc.) and the experience of similar patients in the U.S.

Patient and Graft Survival Rates for Pediatric Kidney Transplant Patients at Cedars-Sinai
