At NUCOT, the paediatric kidney transplant team sees infants, children and adolescents up to the age of 21 who require long-term dialysis and kidney transplant. We work closely with the adult kidney transplant team to ensure that our patients transit seamlessly to adult care, and strive to provide holistic and family-focused medical care for all our patients.
Our team is experienced in the peri-transplant management of children with chronic kidney disease from a variety of causes including congenital abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract, glomerulonephritis and hereditary renal disease. We also manage post-transplantation complications such as rejection, post-transplant infections, and related complications like post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder.
The committed team of specialty nurses, social workers, psychologists and child life therapists provides children with psychological and social support at the time of transplant. Furthermore, our psychosocial team follows through with the patient and their family, allowing us to identify issues on a timely basis and provide psychological support when needed.
We have a dedicated inpatient ward and an experienced Paediatric Intensive Care Unit for our transplant patients.
