The Kidney Transplant Process
California Pacific Medical Center’s Kidney Transplant Program started in 1969. Since this time, our team has performed kidney transplant surgery on more than 4,000 patients, thanks in part to the continuing generosity of organ donors. Our long and successful history has given our team the expertise needed for delivering top results and exceptional patient care.
We want potential transplant recipients to make an informed decision about transplant that’s right for them. Evaluate your options. Consider the facts. Weigh our record of success with the record of others. Then choose the program with the best chance of success, expertise, convenience, personalized care and the ability to unite the family, physician and patients.
A big difference you will find with California Pacific’s Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Program is the commitment to provide you, your doctor and family with outstanding individual attention and care. Our philosophy is that transplantation is not an isolated surgical procedure, but part of a continuum of medical care for patients with end-stage renal disease. To best prepare yourself for transplant, know what to expect both before the surgery and after.
