Before you are listed for a kidney transplant, you will undergo an evaluation at UCLA.
If your child is awaiting kidney transplant, you may want to download and share the e-book "Organ Transplants: What Every Kid Needs to Know."
Our team also offers patient education classes to help you prepare for the transplant, recovery and post-transplant life.
After a kidney transplant, most patients remain in the hospital for about one week, although this time may extend to several weeks in more complicated cases.
We support patients after a kidney transplant, including plans for care at home, transportation to clinic visits and education about after-transplant care, including medications, clinic visit schedule and daily activities.
If you require local housing in the area during the time of transplant, your UCLA transplant coordinator and support team can help. Learn more about lodging and nearby services, including the UCLA Tiverton House.
Patients often continue to receive follow-up care and monitoring from our physicians for years to come. Long after your procedure is completed, you will remain a member of the UCLA transplant family.
