Pediatric Kidney Transplant Evaluation

Step 1: Becoming a Candidate

For More Information

Your child will undergo a comprehensive evaluation with our pediatric transplant team before a kidney transplant is recommended. The day-long assessment will include meetings with doctors, nurses, a social worker, a financial counselor, and others, as well as blood work and other medical tests. We will consider several factors during your child’s evaluation, for example, kidney function, compliance with medications, and availability of caregivers.
