Referring transplant patients
To refer a patient for a kidney or pancreas transplant, call us at 800-284-2185. To refer a patient for liver transplant, call 1-877-425-4837. We’ll fill you in on our guidelines for transplant patients and required tests and exams. Some of these can be done at your office, and we’ll do our best to use specialists in your area for other tests when we can. Some tests will have to be conducted at the Methodist Dallas Transplant Institute.
If your patient passes this extensive prescreening medical evaluation, he or she is approved for organ transplant, placed on the organ waiting list, and returned to you for regular medical care.
Seamless coordination with the Methodist Dallas Transplant Institute
During and after the transplant, we’ll coordinate and communicate with your office to help provide seamless transitions between transplant-related and regular medical care. Though we’ll provide some of the follow-up care, continuing long-term care remains in the hands of the patient’s primary doctor.
