Kidney Transplant Evaluation
When your kidneys fail, treatment is needed to replace the work your own kidneys are no longer able to do. There are two options for treatment, dialysis or kidney transplant. When you get a kidney transplant, a healthy kidney is placed inside your body to do the work your own kidneys are unable to do. Kidney transplants can be completed before your need to start dialysis or after the kidneys fail and dialysis has started. At Richmond Nephrology Associates, we assist with the referral process to a transplant center for an evaluation or workup to see if you qualify for a transplant. We also then help manage your care post kidney transplant.
