When your kidneys can no longer work on their own (called end-stage renal disease or kidney failure), a kidney transplant can save your life. At Allegheny Health Network (AHN) Surgery Institute, we provide outstanding kidney transplant care that’s tailored to your needs and circumstances. We also perform pancreas transplant surgery for people with decreased organ function from type 1 diabetes.
