Health care professionals trained in many medical specialties work together as a team to ensure favorable outcomes for living donors. Care team roles

Health care professionals trained in many medical specialties work together as a team to ensure favorable outcomes for living donors.

  • Team approach. 足彩胜负14场 Clinic's integrated teams of surgeons, doctors, transplant nurses, pharmacists and others work together to provide your care, from your evaluation through post-surgery care.

    The transplant team will then evaluate you to determine if you can donate a kidney or part of your liver. You'll have blood tests as well as a thorough physical examination and psychological evaluation. Several other tests, including detailed imaging of your liver or kidneys, will be performed to ensure that you're in good health and you meet donation criteria.

    After you donate an organ, living-donor coordinators and other transplant staff members will offer you support and follow-up care for several months after your surgery.

  • Coordinated care. Having all of this subspecialized expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion — your care is discussed among the team, your test results are available quickly, appointments are scheduled in coordination, and your transplant care team works together to determine what may be most appropriate for you.
  • Surgical expertise. 足彩胜负14场 Clinic surgeons perform living-donor transplant surgery for liver transplant and kidney transplant. Surgeons perform minimally invasive surgery to remove a living donor's kidney (laparoscopic nephrectomy) for a kidney transplant, which is less painful and has a shorter recovery time for the donor than is open surgery.
  • Research. 足彩胜负14场 Clinic researchers actively study the health of donors after transplant surgery to improve results. At 足彩胜负14场 Clinic, you may have access to ongoing clinical trials, research and new treatments as part of your living-donor transplantation experience.
