Tampa General Hospital is one of the Leading Kidney Transplant Centers in Florida

Physicians talking over a medical chart

As one of the busiest kidney transplant centers in Florida, Tampa General Hospital has performed thousands of transplants since our program was founded in 1974. Our surgeons complete a high volume of kidney transplants each year, which not only makes us one of the most robust programs in the state, but also gives our surgical staff the experience that’s crucial for achieving successful outcomes. At Tampa General, we take a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to transplant care. This allows us to provide each patient with individualized treatment – regardless of the diagnosis they are facing.

Our kidney transplant program, which serves both adult and pediatric patients, is known for:

  • Accepting high-risk patients who may have been previously turned down by other kidney transplant centers
  • Historically having a shorter time to transplant than many other programs in the United States, according to data from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR).
  • Producing kidney transplant survival rates that are typically comparable to or exceed the patient survival rate averages of other kidney transplant centers in the U.S.
