 Florida's First Four-Way Paired Kidney Exchange Transplant Successfully Performed by Miami Transplant Institute Physicians at UHealth/Jackson



Physicians at the Miami Transplant Institute (MTI) at the UHealth/Jackson Memorial Medical Center hit a milestone performing the first four-way paired kidney exchange transplant in Florida. The simultaneous surgeries, which involved four donors and four recipients took place on April 9, and was made possible through the highly recognized Paired Kidney Exchange Program-the only initiative of its kind in the region.


"It is the heart and soul of the kidney program because it generates the best results," said Giselle Guerra, MD, Medical Director of the Living Donor Kidney Program. "The patients do not have to linger on a waiting list; and it lessens the amount of time a patient needs to be on dialysis because they can be transplanted at any point with a living donor."
