A successful organ transplant depends on appropriate evaluation of the organ recipient, expertise in the surgical procedures required to transplant the organ and on-going monitoring after transplant to prevent organ rejection or infections.

To measure the quality of care provided to transplant patients, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center examines one-month, one-year and three-year survival rates for transplant patients. These measures are compared against national averages. These comparisons are highlighted in the charts that follow.

Survival Rates of Cedars-Sinai Transplant Patients Compared to National Averages

The length of time that a transplant patient survives after surgery is a key measure of a quality outcome in transplant surgery. At Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, one-month, one-year and three-year survival rates are tracked for transplants patients. These statistics are compared to national averages collected by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients.
