Inova Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Program provides a unique blend of state-of-the-art surgical technology and our team's compassionate approach.
Transplant Offers the Chance for a Normal Life
We offer pediatric and adult patients with end-stage kidney disease the best option for a normal and healthy life. You or your loved one can be free from dialysis and related complications.
Kidney transplantation occurs when a kidney is donated through a deceased donation or by a living donor. In the case of living donation, Inova specializes in laparoscopic surgery where the donor kidney is removed through a small incision rather than an open surgery. This technology decreases the amount of time the donor needs to stay in the hospital and enhances recovery.
