World Kidney Day: March 14

World Kidney Day is a time to bring awareness to the importance of kidneys and reduce the impact of kidney disease. UI Health’s Nephrology and Kidney Transplant programs provide exceptional care and ground-breaking advancements as a testament to our dedication to reducing the impact of kidney disease and kidney-related health needs for our patients and the communities we serve.

Kidney Transplant has performed the most simultaneous pancreas-kidney (SPK) transplants in the United States in 2023, according to data from the Organ Procurement & Transplantation Network (OTPN), a national organ donation and transplantation database. UI Health’s transplant volumes reflect our program’s expertise and dedication to providing expert care and making a substantial impact in organ transplantation.

The Division of Nephrology specializes in addressing a spectrum of kidney- related conditions and diseases, ranging from end-stage renal disease (ESRD) to
acute kidney failure, kidney stones, and immunological kidney diseases. With a focus on comprehensive care, we excel in kidney transplantation, boasting some of the top outcomes in Chicago.
