Contact the Kidney Transplant Program

The Kidney Transplant Program at Boston Children’s Hospital is the only program in New England entirely focused on pediatric patients. We offer specialized and comprehensive care to children, adolescents and young adults with end-stage renal disease.  

The program is closely integrated with Boston Children’s Division of Nephrology and is part of Boston Children’s Pediatric Transplant Center, which combines the efforts of specialists in heart, lung, liver, intestine and multivisceral and kidney transplantation, where the experience from one transplant program can assist with the outcomes of another. Since the program’s inception in 1971, the team has performed more than 800 kidney transplants.

Pediatric focus

The conditions leading to transplant in children are typically different than those leading to transplant in adults. Together, we bring pediatric expertise to the diagnosis and treatment of every condition resulting in end-stage renal disease in children and use this expertise to avoid or delay transplant when possible. When kidney transplantation is the best option, we will ensure your child is in the best possible health for a successful transplant. 

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
