What is a Kidney Transplant?

A renal transplant also known as kidney transplant is a surgical process that is performed to replace a diseased kidney with a healthy kidney. A healthy kidney may come from:

  • A Cadaveric/Deceased Organ Donor: A person who has recently died 

  • Living Donor: This could be a family member or others who are a good match with the patient and are in a state to donate one of their kidneys. This type of transplant is called a living transplant and the donor has very high chance of living a healthy life with one kidney. The transplanted kidney is placed in the lower abdomen near the groin, on the front side of the body. The Damaged kidney is usually left inside the body unless it is damaged due to infections or high blood pressure or is cancerous.

What are the Conditions for Kidney Transplant?

The patient might go for a kidney transplant if he suffers from:

  • End-Stage Kidney Disease and is on dialysis

  • Advanced chronic kidney disease (stage IV or V with GFR <20ml/min)

  • Chronic kidney disease (stage IV with GFR <30ml/min) and also in a need of another organ transplant

  • Chronic kidney disease and type 1 Diabetes (that has not responded to medical treatment)

What are the Steps Required for the Preparation of the Kidney Transplant?

  • If you have a living donor (anyone ready to donate their kidney to you) then you can go for the transplant as soon as possible.

  • If you do not have a living donor then you may be added to the national waiting list for a donor's kidney. 

  • You have to take some tests to see whether the donor’s kidney matches yours or not.
