About Kidney Transplant

There are many causes of kidney failure, but the leading ones are diabetes and hypertension. No matter the cause, you may be a candidate if your creatinine clearance is less than 20 cc/min. Your nephrologist will guide you on timing.

A kidney transplant can help you get back to the routine you enjoyed prior to becoming ill. Kidney recipients report feeling better, having more energy, and enjoying the freedom from the dialysis schedule that dictated their lives.

Whether you are pre-dialysis or have been on dialysis for several years, a transplant may be an option for you. We will carefully evaluate you to see if a transplant is what you need. Above all, we look out for your best interest. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible care. In some cases, that means not getting a transplant because the risks may be too high.

During the evaluation, you will have the opportunity to learn all about transplants and get answers to all of your questions.
