Wait Time for a New Kidney

There is no definite answer to how long it will take to get a kidney 

  • Sometimes, people wait only a few days or weeks before receiving a donor organ.
  • If no living-related donor is available, it may take months or years on the waiting list before a suitable donor organ is available.
  • During this time, you will receive close follow-up with your physicians and the transplant team.
  • Various support groups are also available to assist you during this waiting time.
