Transplantation

Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Transplant Center

Johns Hopkins is one of only a few centers in the United States to offer a comprehensive array of transplantation services for adults and children:

  • Kidney/pancreas
  • Incompatible kidney
  • Liver
  • Lung
  • Heart
  • Bone marrow

Our priorities are to improve the success rates and develop new techniques that will make transplantation easier for both patients and donors.

Johns Hopkins has a strong history of achievement in transplantation. Surgeons here pioneered the laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy, a less-invasive kidney transplantation process that eliminates the need for large incisions and lengthy recovery times.

Surgeon Robert Montgomery, M.D., director of the Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Transplant Center, developed a revolutionary method of filtering a patient’s blood to enable kidney transplantation from any qualified donor.

Since then, Johns Hopkins surgeons have performed:

  • First three-way kidney paired donation transplant in the United States (2003)
  • First five-way kidney paired donation transplant in the United States (2005)
  • First six-way kidney paired donation transplant in the United States (2007)
  • First eight-way, multihospital kidney paired donation transplant in the United States (2009)
