Stony Brook Children’s is the only Suffolk County hospital to perform renal transplants for children. More than 70 adult and pediatric kidney transplants are performed at Stony Brook University Hospital annually with excellent immediate surgical and long-term results. Most transplant recipients can expect to lead normal, healthy lives after surgery. At Stony Brook, the success rate of the new kidney function after one year is 100 percent for pediatrics and 87 percent for adults and pediatrics combined.
Stony Brook provides a number of patient education materials available for download here.
