Kidney disease affects millions of Americans and can lead to kidney failure. Without therapy, patients with kidney failure will die. Often, this intervention involves a kidney transplant.

Upstate University Transplant Services offers a comprehensive kidney transplant program for patients suffering from End-Stage Renal (Kidney) Disease (ESRD), the final stage of kidney failure. Our Surgeons perform nearly 50 kidney transplants annually (over 4,100 transplants overall) making Upstate's kidney transplant program one of the most experienced kidney transplant programs in the upstate New York area. We have received the Bronze Level Award for organ donor and transplantation from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Here at Upstate our goal is to provide our transplant patients with the best and most advanced care available during all stages of their transplantation from surgery preparation, through the surgery itself and including postoperative care. We understand that you will have a lot of questions and concerns throughout the transplantation process and we will be with you every step of the way providing you with the answers you seek and any support you need to make the process as comfortable for you as possible.
The intent of this site is to provide you with an overview of our kidney transplant program and to answer any preliminary questions you may have about being either a recipient of a kidney transplant or a living kidney donor.
