Nephrology

History

Following its establishment in 1966, the Division of Nephrologys'  first major achievement was the development of a program for kidney transplantation and renal replacement therapy. The first deceased donor kidney transplant was undertaken in 1969 and the first living related donor kidney transplant in 1973.  As of  the mid-2010 almost 800 transplants have been performed. Over the past few years living-donor related transplantation has been performed in collaboration with the Toronto General Hospital.
