What is the process when a kidney is found?

When a potential donor is identified, the coordinator will call (it is very important to keep us aware of any change in address, phone number, or dialysis unit) with specific instructions, and give you a timeline for your care and transplant.

When you are instructed to come to the hospital the coordinator will give you a time and place to report, and will let you know when to stop eating and drinking.

When you come for surgery, please bring:

  • Current medication list
  • Drug allergies list
  • Current health insurance information (current insurance cards)
