About Transplant Surgery

If you need a new kidney or liver, Geisinger has the options you're seeking and success rates at or above national averages. Our team has performed more than 1,100 successful transplants since our program began in 1981.

Geisinger Health System patients have access to the same care and outcomes found at urban centers located hundreds miles away. All transplant surgeries take place at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, and we offer pre- and post- surgery services at several local outreach locations,  including Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Wilkes-Barre and Geisinger-Scenery Park in State College.
