A Record 77 Kidney Transplants Done Last Year

Transplant Manitoba’s Kidney Transplant Program had a record number of kidney transplants completed in 2017. Former peritoneal dialysis user Garth, along with his wife Agnes who donated her kidney, were on hand for the announcement. A record 77 Manitobans have the chance to live longer, healthier lives thanks to the generosity and compassion of donors, including 33 living kidney donors – the highest number of living donors the program has worked with to date. This marks the second year in a row for record kidney transplants in Manitoba. In 2017, Manitoba’s living donor kidney transplant program stands out. At 24.66 kidney transplants per million population, Manitoba has one of the best provincial living donor kidney transplant rates in Canada. You can find the full story here.
