The Kidney Transplant Program and Surgery Services at Memorial Medical Center is a Medicare-certified transplant program.
Each member of our multidisciplinary team will meet with you to assess your individual needs during each step of the transplant process, including::
- pre-transplant evaluation for patients who wish to be considered as potential kidney transplant recipients
- immediate post-operative care for transplant recipients
- continued care management of these patients for the lifetime of their transplanted organs.
You will meet with a nurse, dietitian, a social worker and a financial coordinator before, during and after your transplant surgery.
We evaluate live kidney donors interested in donating a kidney to those in need. If the donors are deemed medically and psychologically suitable, we see them safely though the donation process.
Referrals to our transplant program can come from your nephrologist, your dialysis unit or from yourself.
Our transplant surgery program offers support, guidance and education every step of the way. Each patient and family receives an individual plan, with one-on-one management of all the issues involved in your transplant experience. You will become part of our "transplant family.”
