What We Do

Patients being assessed for a kidney transplant will be seen through our FASTRAK Clinic located in the Ambulatory Transplant Centre. FASTRAK brings together your tests and evaluations into one place. This reduces the number of visits you make to the hospital.

There are 3 steps for a Kidney Transplant Assessment:

Step 1: Your nephrologist (kidney doctor) will send us a referral form and package which includes test and diagnostic results.

Step 2: You may be scheduled for two visits to the FASTRAK Clinic. The first visit will include tests and consultations with a transplant coordinator, social worker and physician. The second visit will include consults with the transplant nephrologist, and any other team members  who are required to meet your needs.

Step 3: The kidney transplant team will review all test results  to determine if a transplant is right for you.

When you go home from the hospital after your surgery, we will schedule your follow-up care in our Ambulatory Transplant Clinic.
