Kidney Services

Nationally, more than 85,000 people are in need of a kidney transplant, a surgical procedure performed to replace a diseased kidney with a healthy kidney from another person.

Since 1992, St. John Medical Center has provided kidney transplant services through the St. John Kidney Transplant Program.

Our core kidney transplant team includes transplant:

  • nephrologists
  • surgeons
  • coordinators
  • dedicated nursing staff and hospital areas

Other specialists involved in the care of our patients include:

  • pharmacist
  • social worker
  • dietician
  • financial advisor
  • pathologist
  • infectious disease consultant
  • radiology and interventional radiology services
  • rehabilitative services

The St. John Kidney Transplant team performs transplants of living and deceased donor kidneys.  Kidney transplantation is a treatment option. It is not for everyone. If your doctor recommends it, you will be referred for a medical evaluation at St. John. The St. John kidney transplant team will work with you from the time of your evaluation throughout your post-operative treatment.

In 2010, Dr. Irfan Kundi, the only Mayo Clinic, fellowship-trained, transplant nephrologist in northeast Oklahoma, joined the transplant team as its medical director.  Dr. Kundi joined the kidney transplant team with the goal of developing a much-needed living donation organ program for northeast Oklahoma.
