In brief: Lots of steps
There are lots of steps that are summarized very nicely on this website: http://www.
Transplantliving.Org/before-the-transplant/getting-on-the-list/. Basically, you have to have a thorough evaluation to make sure you are a suitable candidate. This involves visits with multiple doctors and often several procedures or tests. Often, if you have other health conditions, these are treated beforehand.
