Kidney transplantation is a surgical process of placing a healthy kidney from a donor into the recipient’s body, a patient whose kidneys no longer function properly or having irreversible advanced kidney disease or suffering from end-stage renal disease. This process is also known as Renal Transplantation.


At the time of Kidney Transplantation Surgery, the donor’s kidney is placed into the patient's body and new kidney's blood vessels are connected to the lower abdomen's blood vessels and ureter of the new kidney is attached to the bladder. The new kidney filters blood and starts to produce urine as well. To stop the body from rejecting the new kidney proper medications are given.

After the successful procedure of Kidney Transplantation, the graft starts functioning immediately and improves the quality of life that lessens the risk of death than maintaining dialysis lifelong.
