Kidney Transplant Program
|Michael A. Rees, MD, PhD
Since the first kidney transplant operation was performed at The University of Toledo Medical Center in 1972, more than 1,700 kidney transplant operations have been performed, with an average patient survival rate of 98 percent and a graft survival rate of 94 percent.
The program relies on advanced surgical techniques including laparoscopic kidney donation,
improved anti-rejection medications and high quality patient care to make it one of
the most successful in the country.
