Pre-Transplant Evaluation

Did you know? A living donated kidney may come from a family member, good friend, spouse, in-law or even from a stranger who is in good health and has normal kidney function.

The Pre-Transplant Department of Dallas Transplant Institute coordinates kidney and kidney/pancreas transplant evaluations for Baylor Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute and Methodist Dallas Medical Center.  We also coordinate the medical evaluation for donors at Methodist Dallas Medical Center and Medical City Hospital Dallas.  Donors for the Baylor program will have their medical evaluation coordinated by the Baylor Hospital Donor Coordinator.

The department’s Pre-Transplant coordinators review each patient’s medical record and schedule the appropriate tests according to the American Society of Transplantation guidelines and Transplant Center protocols.

Once these tests have been completed, the coordinators prepare and present the test findings to the Transplant Selection Committee of the appropriate hospital transplant program.

The team follows and continues to monitor each patient until the time of transplantation.

We are here to guide and aid potential kidney recipients and potential donor candidates to their goal of successful transplantation.
