Congratulations to Canadian Blood Services on achieving the 1,000
th kidney transplant performed as part of the Kidney Paired Donor program. UHN's Ajmera Transplant Centre performed 155 of those 1,000 transplants and was a driving force behind the creation of this unique national registry for living kidney donors created in 2009. "This program is a real Canada-wide success story," says Dr. Sunita Singh, Medical Director of UHN's Living Kidney Donation Program. The KPD has given back many years of life to numerous Canadians with end-stage kidney disease, allowing patients to receive a living donor kidney transplant who otherwise would not receive one from a friend or family member due to blood group or immune incompatibility. The program has also increased the number of deceased donor kidneys available to those who do not have a living donor.
