History of Transplantation at Presbyterian

For patients suffering from renal failure, a kidney transplant can be a life- changing gift. Renal Medicine Associates under the leadership of Dr. Richard Cronin, and support of Presbyterian Hospital, started the second kidney transplant program in the state of New Mexico in, 1986. That same year,  the first kidney transplant was performed at our facility.,

Presbyterian has performed hundreds of transplant surgeries, and continued to provide its patients with the best transplant experience possible. We provide care to our patient’s through a multidisciplinary team approach throughout each phase of the transplant experience. We offer Laparoscopic Nephrectomy surgery to our living donors.

Our team serves the people of New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, and Colorado. We have a partnership with New Mexico Donor Services, a leading organ procurement organization. We are certified by the United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS) and Medicare (CMS).
