Transplant Planning

Patients and caregivers will attend an extensive education class where they will learn the necessary steps to take in planning for a transplant. These classes are held frequently at locations throughout the state and cover:

  • Evaluations
  • Review committee
  • Planning specifics
  • Living donations
  • The actual surgery
  • Transplant clinic following surgery
  • Living with a transplant

In general, a patient must be ready to come to the MUSC Transplant Center in Charleston when he or she receives a call stating that a kidney is available. At that time the patient will be reminded about what to bring.
