Kidney Transplant Team

Other Team Members

Other members of your kidney transplantation team may include:

  • Kidney and transplant coordinators (pre- and post-transplant), who are deeply involved in the transplant process, including your care before, during and after transplantation. They will discuss any questions or concerns with you throughout the process and will coordinate your pre- and post-transplant care.
  • Transplant financial coordinators, to be your primary contact for insurance and financial issues related to transplant surgery and care.
  • Transplant dietitians, who are trained and experienced in the nutritional needs of people with kidney diseases and how those needs change during and after transplantation. They will help you create a meal plan and understand food choices that provide the greatest nutritional benefit.
  • Live donor coordinators, to support and manage the care of living kidney donors.
  • Transplant assistants, who play a crucial role in behind-the-scenes efforts to schedule appointments, collect and maintain medical records, and assist in pre- and post-transplant care.
  • Transplant social workers, to help you handle challenges throughout the transplant process. They are your contacts for issues regarding housing, work, relocating, transportation assistance, state disability, medication assistance, community support and more.
  • Transplant pharmacists, who have extensive experience in the medications used to fight transplant rejection and infection and to keep you healthy. They will help monitor your medications while you are in the hospital and during clinic visits, and will educate you about the medications you are taking.
