As one of the country’s largest pediatric kidney diseases groups, we are able to provide comprehensive care to all disorders of the kidney and related metabolic diseases using innovative, evidence-based care that we have often pioneered. U.S. News & World Report ranks the division 12th in the nation for pediatric kidney disorders. The Pediatric Kidney Transplant Program, which is part of the Siragusa Transplantation Center at Lurie Children’s, was the first in the Midwest to perform a kidney transplant in a pediatric patient, is the largest program of its kind in Illinois and is among the nation’s leaders for superior outcomes over the past decade. Our division physicians lead and participate in this multidisciplinary program through which more than 580 kidney transplants have been performed since its inception in 1964. We specialize in dual-organ transplants involving the liver and kidney for metabolic disorders such as oxalosis (primary hyperoxaluria) and have performed more kidney transplants in heart transplant recipients than any other pediatric hospital to date.
