The Next Steps:

After the referral, a Pre-Transplant Coordinator will contact the patient to gather information and answer any questions.

An evaluation packet will be sent to the patient's home. The packet contains information about the transplant process and procedure, living-donor information, information about our Transplant Center and questionnaires to be completed and returned.

Medical releases are included in the packet so the Transplant Center can obtain necessary records from physicians and/or hospital.

Once we have the questionnaires and medical records, the Transplant Team will review the information and contact the patient to schedule a time to come to The Nebraska Medical Center and complete the transplant evaluation.
