Kidney transplantation or renal transplantation is the organ transplant of a kidney into a patient with end-stage renal disease. Kidney transplantation is typically classified as deceased-donor (formerly known as cadaveric) or living-donor transplantation depending on the source of the donor organ. Living-donor renal transplants are further characterized as genetically related (living-related) or non-related (living-unrelated) transplants, depending on whether a biological relationship exists between the donor and recipient.
GK Hospitals has been performing both live-related kidney transplants (renal transplants) as well as cadaveric transplants with results of international standards.
Our team of transplant doctors consists of those who have been in this field for over two decades.
Renal transplant is carried out for patients with end-stage renal failure, that is, when the kidney function is irreversibly reduced to below 15% of normal.
During a renal transplant, the donor's kidney is placed in a new position, in the right or left lower quadrant of the abdomen. The damaged kidneys of the patient are not removed unless required in certain circumstances. After the transplant, the patient will have to take immuno-suppressive drugs life-long.
