Kidney Transplant Newsletter: While You Are Waiting
Kidney transplant at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics has a significantly higher transplant rate compared to other transplant centers nationally, according to www.ustransplant.org, the definitive source for transplant data.
As a service to potential kidney transplant patients currently on the waiting list, our transplant staff contributes to and produces "While You Are Waiting." Patients awaiting transplant are invited to review each issue to increase their knowledge about the transplant process.
