Clinic visits and routine testing
Clinic visits and routine tests are intended to track your child’s health and development after their kidney transplant and identify any problems as early as possible.
This section outlines some tests that kidney transplant patients may undergo, but remember that every patient and every transplant program is different. Your transplant team will explain the routine in your center and the plan for your child’s specific situation and health concern.
Immediately after their transplant, your child will usually visit the clinic once or twice a week. Over time, these visits will often become less frequent, once your child doesn’t have any problems. Many centers eventually cut down appointments to once every six months for patients who are doing well.
