Your Child's Kidney Transplant Surgery

Your child's transplant team from UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh calls you about a possible matching kidney.

So, what happens next?

First, you'll need to get to the hospital right away.

Meanwhile, the transplant team will check the kidney to make sure it's healthy and a good match for your child. Sometimes, they find it isn't a good match.

This news can crush your spirits and sense of hope. But it's vital that your child receive a kidney that's safe and best for them.

If the kidney is a match, we'll stabilize your child and get them ready for the pediatric kidney transplant.
