This book is written by transplant care experts, Dr. Sandesh Parajuli and Dr. Fahad Aziz, transplant nephrologists with the University of Wisconsin, one of the largest and most successful transplant programs in the country.
Dr. Parajuli and Dr. Aziz have written this book to help educate patients who may have questions about:
* The decision to pursue the transplant option
* The transplant process
* How transplant recipients are selected
* What factors go into transplant decisions
* Care of transplanted kidneys
* Success stories and more
Many times as patients, we have more questions than answers and need a reliable and factual source for decisions that impact our lives. Getting educated is always the right answer and patients should clearly understand all of their treatment options. This book is an accurate and clear guide to help educate those who have received a kidney transplant, those in need of a kidney transplant, and the general population with an interest in kidney transplantation.
If we know one thing from our work with kidney patients it is: Educated patients live longer and better lives.
It is always worth the time to get educated on your treatment options.
