• Your Journey to a Kidney Transplant

    Hank, kidney transplant recipient

At DaVita, our goal is to help everyone eligible pursue a kidney transplant and to inform those who support them. Transplant is an ideal treatment option for eligible people with end stage kidney disease (ESRD) to replace kidney function. After successful transplantation, people typically do not have to perform dialysis for many years, which may lead to more energy, a less restrictive diet, longer life and more time and freedom to enjoy life.
