On the morning of your living-donor kidney transplant surgery, we will admit you to UPMC Montefiore.
You will meet with the kidney transplant surgeon and anesthesiologist who will:
- Review the surgery with you.
- Have you sign consent forms.
- Answer any last-minute questions.
After the paperwork, you will proceed to the operating room.
Living-donor kidney transplant surgery can take between three and five hours.
Your loved ones can wait in the Ambulatory Surgery Center waiting area where staff will provide frequent updates. After the surgery is complete, your kidney transplant surgeon will also meet with your family members.
