    The Power of Transplant: In Sickness and In Health

    Steve Sennott suffered from a genetic kidney disease, spending weeks at a time in the hospital. Knowing that Steve could face dialysis for the rest of his life, his wife Jackie suggested a kidney transplant and immediately volunteered to be his donor. Learn how the power of transplant gave Steve and Jackie a fresh perspective on life and a new appreciation of the vows “in sickness and in health.

    Kidney Transplant Referral to Lahey

    If you are on dialysis, or approaching dialysis, it is important for you to ask your nephrologist (kidney specialist) to set up an appointment with Lahey to begin looking at the possibility of a kidney transplant. Having a functioning kidney is a better long-term solution for end-stage renal disease and is much more cost-effective compared to dialysis.

    Your physician or nephrologist can contact a representative in Lahey’s Department of Transplantation at 781-744-2500 and request an appointment for you. He or she will need to fax or mail your records for us to review. We will subsequently contact you to schedule an appointment.

    If you are not certain whether your condition warrants a kidney transplant, give us a call at 781-744-2500, and we will be glad to look at your individual condition and give you advice.
