We use developments in full-information optimal stopping to decide kidney –offer admissibility depending on the patient’s age in treatment, on his/her estimated lifetime probabilistic profile and his/her prospects on the waiting list. We allow for a broad family of life time distributions – the Gamma – thus enabling flexible modeling of patients’ survival under dialysis. We fully automate an appropriate recursive solution in a spread sheet application. It yields the optimal critical times for acceptance of offers of different qualities, and the ensuing expected value – to – go as a function of time. The model may serve both the organizer of a donation program for planning purposes, and the particular surgeon in making the critical decision at the proper time. It may further serve the potential individual recipient, practicing present-day patient-choice.
