Kidney transplants in Erasmus MC
We have been performing kidney transplants for 50 years. We now perform the most kidney transplants in the Netherlands with living donors. We receive many referrals from all over the country for second opinions in patients with complex diseases.
We are the national referral centre for highly immunised patients. These are patients with many antibodies in their body. We help these patients who are difficult to transplant with a special computer program (CIAT). This program looks for possibilities to make transplantation possible.
We perform kidney transplants with deceased donors, living donors, and altruistic kidney donations; we also perform kidney transplants in children. We were also the first to develop alternative living kidney donations, such as cross-over kidney transplants and domino kidney donations; and also transplants in different blood groups and across immunological barriers. These new possibilities allow us to help more patients.
We were able to develop the new transplant possibilities thanks to a good laboratory, and thanks to our long experience in the psychosocial field.
On the occasion of our 50th anniversary in 2021, we organised an online information session, because we are proud of where we are and of what we can do. Our specialists talk in detail about the many aspects of a kidney transplant
