Our Approach

The Center’s multidisciplinary clinic is conveniently located on the campus of Saint Louis University Hospital. This clinic allows for coordinated visits with our healthcare teams for Kidney Disorders, Liver & Digestive Diseases, Transplantation and Dialysis Access.

Through small, informal educational sessions, transplant candidates meet team members, talk with transplant recipients, and learn more about transplantation. Our program provides comprehensive support for patients and their families throughout the process – from undergoing a transplant to maintaining a healthy organ.

Living Donor Kidney Transplant

Living donor kidney transplantation occurs when a healthy individual donates one of his or her kidneys to a person with end stage renal disease. Being a living donor allows you to give the ultimate gift of life to someone in need. Through the act of donation, a healthy person can help a person with end stage renal failure return to a healthier, more functional life.
