Kidney Patient Selection

When all of your tests are done, the Patient Selection Committee will meet to discuss your case. It is important to make sure that anything that could be a problem has been taken care of. This committee will determine if you are eligible to be put on the kidney transplant waiting list. The members of this committee are:

  • Transplant surgeons
  • Transplant nephrologists
  • Transplant coordinators
  • Financial coordinator
  • Immunologist
  • Transplant social worker

After looking at all of the information, the committee makes one of the following choices:

  • A transplant is a good choice for you.
  • More tests are needed, and your case will be discussed again.
  • A transplant is not a good choice for you.

You will be notified of the committee decision.
