      Dr. Rosen says “The transplant community is not expecting a change in transplantation activity. Many patients are in need of transplantation. Transplantation is costly, but very effective. With kidney disease, transplantation is clearly more cost-effective than dialysis. For other end-stage organ diseases, there is no other option.”
