Supporting Specialists

The Transplant Center at Rhode Island Hospital has organized a comprehensive group of supporting specialists to ensure that every aspect of each patient's care is expertly and seamlessly coordinated. These include:

  • a transplant pathologist
  • a dermatologist assigned to handle the skin lesions that commonly afflict the transplant population
  • cardiologists specializing in managing the cardiovascular risk factors that can be critical to a kidney recipient's long-term survival
  • infectious disease specialists
  • psychiatrists
  • transplant nurses
  • nutritionists
  • a pharmacist
  • transplant social workers
  • a financial coordinator to assist with third party coverage.

In short, we make sure that nothing is left to chance for the long-term well-being of our kidney transplant patients.
