Patient Information

Receiving a Human Tissue Transplant

Like all medical treatments, the decision to offer a tissue transplant to a patient is made only after careful consideration. In making that decision your (or your child’s) doctor will balance the risk of you having a transplant against the risk of you not having one.

Please note this patient information leaflet does not replace the guidance provided by your treating clinician(s). Your clinician(s) should advise you of the options that exist for your treatment, advise of alternative treatment and associated risks. Your clinician should ensure that you are aware of the material risks of injury associated with this treatment. If you are unsure about any aspects of your treatment/care ask your clinician(s) to explain.
