We not only do the surgery, but we’re involved in a great deal of care for the patients throughout their entire continuity of their transplant experience — the evaluation before, the surgical care during the transplant — during the hospitalization — and the long-term care.
We encourage family participation for several reasons. First, members of the family can be possible living donors — which is a significant advantage for any patient pursuing transplant. And it’s much better for the patients to have caregivers and significant family support after a transplant. It’s a very important component of — frequently our recommendation — whether a patient should pursue transplant or not, the degree of family support that he has.
