With one of the largest kidney transplant programs in Texas and more than a 30-year history of providing organ transplant services, we recognize that kidney disease impacts your health and quality of life. If you have a diagnosis of end-stage renal disease (more commonly known as kidney failure) and don’t have any conditions that would exclude you from getting an organ transplant, you may be considered as a candidate for a kidney transplant. Your physician will refer you to a Baylor Scott & White Health kidney transplant center for a complete evaluation that includes a series of physical examinations, diagnostic tests and educational meetings following a diagnosis of kidney failure.
It is not necessary to be on dialysis prior to transplant. Pre-dialysis candidates should have a kidney function less than or equal to 20% to be placed on the kidney transplant waiting list. If you are eligible for a kidney transplant and your insurer has cleared the procedure, you’ll be placed on our kidney transplant list and registered with the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), the national organ-donor system.
