kidney transplant

We are one of the most innovative kidney transplant centers providing service, training, and conducting research.
King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital’s transplant nephrologists, infection disease doctors, surgeons, transplant
coordinators and staffs are full of scientific knowledge and service mind.
We are leader in living donor kidney transplants (LKT).
We are one of a few transplant centers in Thailand which has similar number of patients having
LKT and deceased-donor kidney transplant (DKT).
To relief the organ shortage problem, we provide many options for our ESKD patients to have LKT in many ways such as,
desensitization for ABO incompatible, and desensitization for HLA incompatible, before registering them in the national waitlist.
Here are some of our milestones of successful.
    - In 1972, the first kidney transplantation in Thailand
    - In 2008, the first ABO incompatible kidney transplantation in Thailand
    - In 2016, the first kidney transplant fellow program in Thailand
    - In 2020, our first kidney transplant to HIV recipient
Our research mainly focuses on pharmacokinetics, pharmacogenomics, biomarkers, immunosuppressive regimens, and infections.
We also have kidney transplant fellowship training for nephrologist to cope with complex kidney transplant issues.
We are prompted to transfer our innovative knowledge to all transplant centers which have the same goal to relieve the illness for our ESKD patients.
