Criteria for Consideration

To be considered for transplant, you will undergo a full medical evaluation performed in the Clinic by our team of the transplant surgeons, nephrologists, pre-coordinator nurses, financial case managers, and social workers. The tests required depend upon the specifics of your case. The surgeon will review the results of this medical examination to further determine eligibility.

If you are approved, you will receive written confirmation and be listed with the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), which administers the only national patient waiting list. Once listed with UNOS, you’ll need ongoing evaluations at regular intervals to determine continual eligibility. Should an organ become available, the recipient is selected based on a defined set of criteria established by UNOS.

Once a transplant is performed, our multi-disciplinary team will continue to monitor your medical condition for as long as care is necessary. Follow-up care includes regularly scheduled evaluations, on-going immunosuppressive drug therapy, prescription refills and lab reviews.
