Mikel Prieto, M.D., has clinical and research interests in kidney and pancreas transplantation in adults and kidney transplantation in children. He is also interested in the evaluation and surgery of living kidney donors. Specifically, Dr. Prieto studies methods to maximize living donation and pre-emptive kidney transplantation.
Dr. Prieto's goal is to maximize the number of patients who are able to receive a successful kidney transplant from a living donor. Given the present organ shortage, the option of a living-donor transplant represents the best opportunity for patients with end-stage kidney disease to return to a full productive life and expect good long-term outcomes.
