Entering our transplant program requires a thorough evaluation and examination. Our nurse coordinator will assist you in scheduling all of the necessary appointments.

The coordinator will also discuss the process with you in detail, so you feel informed and comfortable with the next steps in your care. The coordinator can answer any questions you may have about entering the program.

Entering the Transplant Program: What to Expect

Before we list you for a transplant, we will evaluate you. This evaluation helps us determine your placement on the waiting list for a transplant.

As part of the evaluation, we will:

  • Perform a thorough physical examination
  • Study your medical records
  • Check if your other organs are strong enough for surgery
  • Describe the transplant in detail
  • Explain what happens after transplant, including the medications you will need to take
  • Ask about your insurance, finances and who will help care for you after surgery
