Get answers to your Kidney Transplant questions.
The University of Maryland has always been a leader in both surgical innovation and opportunities for patients in transplantation. Paired kidney exchange (PKE) is yet another opportunity we offer. The program is designed for patients who have a living donor that is otherwise healthy and suitable for donation but incompatible with their intended recipient.
Through paired kidney exchange we've turned 'no' into 'yes' and are excited about the possibilities. We've invested significant resources — including designated clinical nurse coordinators — to maintain this specialty program and multiple assistants in our office to facilitate such procedures.
