Transplantation Consultation

A kidney transplant is a treatment option, not a cure, and while a transplant will improve quality of life for some, it is not always the best option. Transplantation involves an operation which takes about three hours to remove a kidney from one person and put it into someone whose kidneys are no longer working. After the transplant operation, the recipient must take anti-rejection medications as long as they have the working transplant kidney.

A consultation with your doctor and a series of medical tests can help determine what plan of action is best for you.
