Today kidney transplantation is accepted as the best treatment for most patients suffering from end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The Pre Transplant Department recognizes that the decision to have a transplant is a very important and sometimes difficult decision for you and your family. We also recognizes that you will have many concerns, questions, and fears as you face this decision.
It is important that you have as many facts as possible:
Information about who the entire transplant team is
What is involved in the medical evaluation necessary to be considered for a transplant
Information about the actual transplantation procedure
Requirements for follow-up care after your transplant.
We at the Dallas Pre Transplant Group believe that the decision to pursue a transplant or especially to donate a kidney is a very serious and life changing process. We are committed to making that as comfortable as possible.
The decision to pursue transplantation will take a significant commitment from you and your family. This commitment should be considered very carefully before you make this decision.
