Department of Kidney Transplant Unit

The Kidney Transplant Inpatient Unit at Sunrise Hospital is a 3 bed unit with a dedicated and experienced staff who specialize in the care of patients who are preparing for a kidney transplant or who have had a kidney transplant.To accommodate significant growth in patient volumes the transplant unit was developed to improve the continuum of care between pre- and post-transplant patients.

State-of-the-art procedures for kidney transplantation include:
  • Cadaveric renal transplantation
  • Cadaver-donor kidney transplantation
  • Living donor kidney transplants (from both related and unrelated donors)
  • Laparoscopic donor Nephrectomy

Many members of the interdisciplinary health care team may be involved in your care including transplant unit nurses, transplant surgeons/urologists, social workers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, pharmacists, diabetes specialists, dieticians and community care access center staff.The goal of the program is to provide transplant patients a continuum of specialized care and assist them in every way possible throughout the transplant journey.
