A Quick Look at Riverside’s Transplant Program
Riverside Community Hospital is home to the only organ transplant program in Riverside County. We provide kidney transplant services to patients with end stage renal failure (ESRF) with the comfort of being close to home. Our interdisciplinary team of specialists is committed to providing patients the very best in care and education to help them through the transplant and recovery process.
Our program offers kidney transplants from both living and deceased donors. Transplanting a kidney from a living donor has significant advantages, including better matching, faster transplants, and easier surgery scheduling. However, both types of transplants can be transformative for patients and help them regain good health. During the post-surgical hospital stay, patients and their caregivers will receive extensive education about home care, recovery, and warning signs of rejection.
