What does it mean to be on ‘the list‘ for a kidney transplant?
After completing the evaluation process, the multidisciplinary team reviews the results. If you are approved for a kidney transplant, you will be registered with the United Network for Organ Sharing, more commonly called UNOS. That is the national waiting list that all patients across the country are placed on. The list is the place where donor organs are matched with recipients on the wait list.
