Kidney Patients Can Now Receive Pre- and Post-Transplant Care Closer to Home

Emory Transplant CenterBeginning in May 2012, the Emory Transplant Center will provide pre- and post-transplant services for renal patients in northwest Georgia at our new location in Cartersville. Along with our two existing satellite offices in Savannah and Dublin, the new office in Cartersville means that more Georgians can receive kidney transplant evaluations and follow-up care from Emory professionals without making a trip to Atlanta.

Emory’s Kidney Transplant Program:

  • Provides comprehensive evaluations for kidney and pancreas transplantation, as well as state-of-the-art transplant follow-up care
  • Offers a highly skilled team of specialists in the care of kidney transplant patients and living donors
  • Ranks as one of the top programs of its kind in the country, with success rates higher than expected for both patient and graft survival*
  • Performed 215 kidney transplant procedures in 2011 – the largest number of transplants in a single year in the history of the program
