Program highlights

  • We performed over 110 kidney transplants in 2012
  • We are one of the largest kidney transplant programs in the Washington, DC metro region
  • Last year all living donor surgeries were completed using a laparoscope – which promises a decrease in pain, shorter length of hospital stay, and a quicker return to work

Kidney transplantation occurs when a kidney is donated by deceased donation or living donation. In the case of living donation, laparoscopic nephrectomies are performed. This technology decreases donor patient length of stay and enhances donor recovery.

Facilities and staff are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide consultation and immediate care for transplant patients. The program emphasizes a continuum of care and support for the patient and family from the initial referral through transplantation and postoperative extended care.

The kidney and kidney/pancreas program at Inova Fairfax Hospital offers both pediatric and adult patients with end-stage disease the best option for a normal and healthy life free from dialysis and related complications.
