 The Department of Surgery at Saint Luke’s Hospital is seeking a 4th (BC/BE in Surgery) fellowship trained transplant surgeon for a successful and well-established kidney program at Saint Luke’s Hospital, a 600-bed, regional tertiary hospital based at the beautiful Plaza district in Kansas City.  The kidney transplant program at Saint Luke’s Hospital is the leader in the area in performing live donor transplants and has performed over 1,000 transplants since the program’s inception in 1969.  In 1999, the program performed the first dual kidney /heart transplant, and is currently involved in innovative clinical programs which include: ABO-incompatible and positive crossmatch transplantation, vascular access procedures, live donor paired-kidney exchange program as well as working in collaboration with the Midwest Transplant Network in the anonymous donor program.  Saint Luke’s offers a multitude of patient care services which allows the kidney transplant program to provide a multi-disciplinary evaluation and medical management of the patients before and after transplantation.  Also includes very active nephrology program and a large referral base.  The transplant program did approximately 75 transplants per year and is an active participant in the work of Midwest Transplant Network, the local organ procurement organization which recovered 200 donors in 2006.  Some organ retrieval surgery would be available in this position.

  

  • The Kidney program has dedicated Transplant Nephrology team and works with strong nephrology groups and large referral base.
  • Over 150 kidney transplants per year over the last 2 years.
  • Top 3 OPO in the country  with over 300 donors per year. 
  • Academic appointment available and opportunity to work with UMKC surgical residents and APP staff.
  • Clinical research is encouraged and supported by nephrology and Hepatology team.
  •  Candidate must participate in kidney and liver  transplant and procurement procedures.
      

 The successful candidate will participate in all aspects of renal transplantation including clinical trials and kidney transplant related clinical forums.  The candidate can also be an active participant in the renal transplant clinic which currently follows over 400 patients.  There are excellent opportunities for clinical research, program expansion and medical resident education as Saint Luke’s Hospital is a major teaching hospital of University of Missouri-Kansas City.  An interest in basic science research is desirable.  This position would be at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.

 There are currently 3 transplant surgeons in the renal program. The program also provides 2/3 coverage for the renal transplant program at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.  

 Kansas City (population – 1.5 million) is known as the “City of Fountains” and features professional sports, jazz, world class BBQ, beautiful lakes and parks and access to three of the top ranked public-school districts in the U.S.  Recently voted as having one of the “Kid Friendliest” suburbs by USA TODAY.
