We specialize in deceased donor kidney transplants. In these instances, the donor has been declared brain dead* (deceased) and has functioning organs suitable for transplant.
*Complete stopping of all function of the brain that cannot be reversed. A brain-dead person is not in a coma, but is, in fact, dead.
Organ donation wait time generally ranges from 2 to 6 years. When a potential organ becomes available, the clinical coordinator will call you and advise you to come in right away.
The coordinator will give you instructions on what you need to do to prepare for the transplant.
The surgery can take from 2½ to 4 hours, depending on your medical condition and previous surgeries. The expected length of hospital stay for an uncomplicated kidney transplant is 5 days.
