Kidney Transplant Lists; What Does This Mean?
Getting to the top of a kidney transplant list takes considerable time in most cases, and there is no guarantee that a patient’s body will accept a new kidney after a transplant procedure has been performed. For some individuals suffering from kidney disease, the process can involve multiple kidney transplants.
Unfortunately, many people do not know where to turn for help if they or a family member has developed kidney disease. At Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli and Pratt P.A., we help people suffering from kidney disease. Our kidney disease medical malpractice attorneys hold nurses, doctors, and hospitals responsible for the negligent treatment of patients.
In addition to filing civil lawsuits on behalf of our clients, we help clients learn more about resources available to meet their medical needs. After decades of legal practice in this field, our firm has extensive knowledge of kidney disease and resources that can be helpful to people suffering from kidney disease. We are pleased to assist clients with information about national and state transplant lists.

In the United States, more than 185,000 kidney disease patients have had a kidney transplant procedure, according to the National Kidney Foundation. Arriving at the top of a kidney transplant list isn’t guaranteed to save your life, nor will you rise to the top of the list overnight. When you finally do undergo a transplant, there’s no assurance that your body will accept the new kidney. It’s a very serious surgery and for some patients, multiple kidney transplant surgeries are necessary.
