Preparing for a Kidney Transplant

There is a lot to plan for when getting ready to receive a transplant: the process involves evaluation phase, a waiting period, hospitalization for surgery and continuing lifelong care after surgery.

We provide a dedicated team of individuals to provide help and answer questions during each step of the process.

A nephrologist will refer you for evaluation at the UF Health Shands Transplant Center. During the one to three day evaluation, you will meet every member of the team, including your transplant surgeon, and complete a series of tests and interviews.
