We see patients one week after surgery and as needed for follow-up. We are also required by United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS) to see you at the six-month, one-year and two-year mark after your donation. These are mandatory visits. However, if you live far away, we can arrange for you to send us the needed information. This information is important to assure your health and provides a national database for us to identify any problems with the donation process.
