Riverside County’s Only Transplant Program | Riverside Community Hospital
Studies show that at least 47,000 people were waiting for kidney transplants as of the year 2000 in the United States. And while the exact numbers have changed over the years, thousands of individuals are still currently waiting for a kidney and/or pancreas transplants. Fortunately, the Transplant Program at Riverside Community Hospital offers patients both kidney and kidney/pancreas transplantations.
Our physicians and surgeons ensure a patient-centered program that offers individualized diagnostic and treatment services for transplantation candidates. We strive to provide all of our services in a safe, compassionate environment to facilitate whole-body healing, rather than just treating the isolated problem. Our program is dedicated to helping patients receive the most comprehensive treatments when an organ transplant is the best or only option. Our team of board certified physicians and surgeons, all of whom are part of our highly trained multi-disciplinary transplantation team, are known for providing comprehensive, exceptional clinical services with survival statistics surpassing the national average.
All of our kidney and kidney/pancreas transplantation procedures are performed by an interdisciplinary team of specialists to ensure procedure success and high survival rates. In order to be put on a transplant donor list, all patients are required to undergo a thorough evaluation and medical screening to ensure candidacy. After an individual is placed on the donor list, they are still required to undergo monitoring on a consistent basis during the entire waiting period. This not only ensures the patient’s ongoing eligibility, but it also helps physicians identify any health risks that may developed during the waiting process. Once the transplant is completed, our transplant team escorts all patients to the inpatient transplant unit where they will be monitored. This helps identify any necessary follow-up care and also helps our team identify any signs of transplant rejection or bodily infection.
