Evaluation screening

Our main goal is to make sure that a kidney transplant will make the quality of your life better, and that the surgery itself will be safe for you.  

The first step is for your care team to submit an online referral, which can be accessed here >

Once we receive this information we will review your insurance coverage and schedule an evaluation appointment with our team.

Your kidney transplant evaluation appointment will last approximately four hours. During this time, you will meet many members of our multidisciplinary team. 

After this appointment we will also need to schedule the following tests:

  • Cardiac echocardiogram
  • Cardiac stress test
  • Chest X-ray
  • Electrocardiogram
  • Up-to-date cancer screenings such as mammogram, pap smear, colonoscopy, and prostate cancer screening
  • Consultation with specialty providers, as necessary based upon your individual medical history

 Additional testing and consults may be required if deemed necessary. 
Once all testing is completed, your care team will establish whether you are ready to proceed to transplantation.
