Get kidney transplant success rates: 
Survival,  recovery, transplants that last.

90% survive: Look at how well they live 

Though the average survival rate 3 years after a kidney transplant is 90%, survival alone does not mean a high kidney transplant success rate. To get the full picture of kidney transplant success rates, look at how long your kidney transplant is likely to last and how well you can recover free of complications. A transplant that lasts is your chance to return to a life free of end stage kidney disease and free of dialysis. Recovering without complications makes the difference between a post-transplant life at home and a life in and out of the hospital. Konnectology gives you the facts on all aspects of kidney transplant sucess rates beyond survival.

Go to the best kidney transplant center

Kidney transplant success rates vary greatly across transplant centers. Though the average 3 year survival rate is 90%, it varies between 83% and 94%, depending on the center you go to. How long transplants last are also different from center to center and complications that threaten your recovery are double at some centers. At Konnectology you get all kidney transplant success rates at the centers you are considering and explore centers with the highest kidney transplant success rates. This is where you are more likely to do well.
