Kidney Transplant Program

Waiting for Kidney Transplant

Once a patient is placed on the transplant waiting list, it is important that the kidney transplant program be notified of any changes in the patient’s condition such as:

  • Surgeries and procedures.
  • Active infections.
  • New medical diagnoses.
  • Hospitalizations.
  • Addition of anticoagulant medications (blood thinners).

It is also important for the transplant program to receive any updated testing results that have been performed on the patient, such as:

  • Cardiology testings.
  • New imaging studies (i.e. CT scans, etc.).

It is very important that patients waiting for transplant contact our office with any changes in their address, phone number or insurance information.

Our program has a designated waitlist coordinator who contacts each patient monthly to check-in proactively to ask of any such changes.

Please call 302-623-3866 if you wish to provide an update to us.
