Kidney Transplant Surgery, Health Channel

Dr. Christian Suarez, Nephrologist with Baptist Health South Florida, explains patients can be candidates for kidney transplant when the kidneys are working less than 20% or the glomerular filtration rate is less than 20%.

However, not every patient that has those conditions can be a candidate for kidney transplant, but the doctor affirms most of the patients can be evaluated for it.
