Kidney Transplant Life Expectancy Statistics & Survival Rate

National Kidney Transplant Life Expectancy Statistics

National kidney transplant survival rate statistics have continued to improve in recent years. The loss of a kidney graft port-transplant has dropped from 5.2% in 2998 down to just 2.7% in 2009. Additionally kidney transplant life expectancy rates have continued to improve as graft survival rates (survival with a functioning graft) improve, as the following statistics illustrate.

National Deceased Donor Kidney Transplant Statistics:

  • The national 6-month kidney transplant survival rate was 94.4% in 2009.
  • The national 1 year kidney transplant survival rate was 92% in 2008
  • The national 3 year kidney transplant survival rate was 81.9% in 2006.

National Living Donor Kidney Transplant Statistics:

  • The national 6-month kidney transplant survival rate was 97.7% in 2009.
  • The national 1 year kidney transplant survival rate was 96.5% in 2008
  • The national 3 year kidney transplant survival rate was 90.9% in 2006.

The number of patients with a functioning kidney graft has more than doubled from 68,200 in 1998 to 144,180 in 2009.

Our Kidney Transplant Survival Rate Statistics:

We regularly exceed the national average for kidney transplant survival rates:

Our Living Donor Kidney Transplant Statistics:

  • 98% 1 year living kidney transplant survival rate
  • 90% 3 year living kidney transplant survival rate

Our Deceased Donor Kidney Transplant Statistics:

  • 95% 1 year deceased kidney transplant survival rate
  • 90% 3 year deceased kidney transplant survival rate

• Average length of stay across all transplants of 6 days. 4 days less than the national average
*Transplant survival rates through June 30, 2010

We Have Some of the Best Transplant Survival Rates in the US

An analysis of the 1997 report published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows that among the 32 centers (of 99 total centers) that exceeded 60 transplants in the report's most recent two-year interval, Nazhi Zuhdi Transplant Institute in Oklahoma City ranked:

  • 4th in the US in actual one-year survival (90 percent)
  • 6th in the US in disease-severity-adjusted one-year survival.

Our current one-, two-, three- and five-year transplant survivals are 89 percent, 86 percent, 83 percent and 75 percent.

Kidney transplant patients are referred to us from across the US, especially from surrounding states including: Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Missouri, Nebraska and Louisiana."
