Kidney Transplant Educational Video

The surgeons at the University of Maryland Medical Center are nationally respected pioneers in minimally invasive procedures.  Our physicians’ vast surgical expertise, combined with our multidisciplinary approach and groundbreaking research distinguishes us from other Centers in the region.  One of the many unique aspects about our program is patients have the opportunity to interact with a comprehensive team of specialists, including a surgeon who has the experience of being a transplant recipient, and a compassionate staff of nurses who work in partnership with you throughout your transplant journey.  In this video, you will be introduced to members of the University of Maryland Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Program who will describe the reasons for seeking kidney transplantation and illustrate the strengths of the transplant program at the University of Maryland Medical Center.
