We begin the process of finding a donor kidney once your child is approved for a kidney transplant. They may have the option of receiving a kidney from a living donor or wait for a deceased donor kidney on the national waitlist. We want to provide your child with a healthy, compatible kidney as quickly and safely as possible.
Kidney transplant surgery is performed at Duke Children's Hospital and Health Center. Pre- and post-transplant appointments take place at our kidney transplant clinic within Duke Children's.
If you want to make an appointment for a pediatric kidney transplant evaluation for your child, please contact us. Our team can help with next steps.
Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center is proud to be nationally ranked in nine pediatric specialties.
