Kidney Transplant Center


Contact: (512) 901-2880

The Kidney Transplant Center at North Austin Medical Center has been serving patients in Austin and Central Texas since 1996. During that time, we have performed life-saving kidney transplants for more than 350 patients in our state-of-the-art facility. Our interdisciplinary team provides education, exceptional care and the very latest treatments for end stage renal disease (ESRD).

For patients with ESRD, a renal transplant is a life-transforming event. To help ensure a successful transplant, the skilled professionals at our center perform a thorough evaluation of each patient to determine if transplant is the best treatment option in each case.

Our comprehensive approach to kidney transplant includes supporting patients after their surgery through continued monitoring and follow-up by key members of our transplant team, including nephrologists, surgeons, nurse coordinators, social workers and clinical pharmacists.

The Kidney Transplant Center at North Austin Medical Center features:

  • A highly experienced transplant team, including board certified surgeons, certified transplant coordinators, and highly trained support specialists.
  • Comprehensive treatment programs with individualized care for each patient before, during and after transplant surgery.
  • Steroid free therapy using immunosupression models that limit the use of long-term steroid therapy.
  • Laparoscopic living donor nephrectomy, a minimally invasive surgical technique that reduces pain and scarring, and also results in shorter hospital stays and a more rapid return to normal activities.
