Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Program in Augusta, GA

The Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Program at GRHealth in Augusta, GA, recognizes that kidney and pancreas transplantation can be an unsettling experience for patients and their families in Georgia, South Carolina and throughout the Southeast. We believe that regardless of where patients are in the transplant process, they never need to face these concerns and this anxiety alone.

 

Our dedicated kidney and pancreas transplant team recognizes the special needs of kidney transplant patients and pancreas transplant patients, and understands that living with a transplant may affect patients’ lifestyles in many ways. We endeavor to help patients resume many of their former activities and we encourage patients to maximize their quality of life.
