Incompatible Kidney Transplant Program

Incompatible Kidney Transplant Program

Often, patients who need a kidney transplant have a living donor. Unfortunately, many living donors may not have blood or tissue types that match the recipient. If the donor organ does not match the recipient’s blood and tissue, the transplant will fail. Incompatible donor/patient pairs may be interested in one of our Incompatible Kidney Transplant programs.
