Nephrology and Kidney Transplant Surgery
Milestone for region’s kidney transplant center
UC Davis Children’s Hospital is home to the Sacramento region’s only pediatric nephrology and renal transplant program, where we use research and early adoption of emerging techniques to help influence volume and outcomes locally and nationally. In 2018, the UC Davis Transplant Center team completed its 4,000th overall kidney transplant.
Unique dialysis service provides bridge to transplant
To better serve children waiting for a kidney transplant, in 2016 our program added what continues to be the region’s only outpatient peritoneal dialysis service for patients under 10 years of age.
Our pediatric nephrology program placed among the nation’s best in 2018–19 U.S. News & World Report rankings.
