Transplant Volume by Organ Type

Volume of Organ Transplant Surgeries

What are we measuring?

The number of patients who receive a liver, kidney or pancreas transplant at BIDMC.

Why is this important?

This data shows how many transplants BIDMC has done in the past four years.

What is our performance telling us?

Studies have found that surgical teams with experience - that is, routinely performing a sufficient number of cases - get better results. The chart below shows how many transplants BIDMC performed over a four-year period.

Source of data: BIDMC Administrative/Patient Level Database. Based on the transplant date.

The number of organ transplants performed each year by any Transplant Program is determined by the availability of organs.  Learn more about organ donation and please register to be an organ donor.  

One-year Patient Survival Rates

What are we measuring?

The percent of patients who are alive one year after receiving a transplant.

Why is this important?

Our goal is to extend the lives of people with kidney, liver and pancreas diseases.

What is our performance telling us?

The chart below shows how BIDMC's performance compares to the National Database survival rate by organ type.

Source of data: Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR), Updated July, 2011

The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) data shows that BIDMC's one year patient survival rate for kidney, liver and pancreas transplants is very close to the national average for each organ transplant.
