Kidney Transplantation

Kidney Transplantation & Procedures for Transplantation

 

Kidneystone

Kidney transplant is a surgical procedure to place a healthy kidney from a living or deceased donor into a person whose kidneys no longer function properly.The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs located on each side of the spine just below the rib cage. Each is about the size of a fist. Their main function is to filter and remove waste, minerals and fluid from the blood by producing urine.

When your kidneys lose this filtering ability, harmful levels of fluid and waste accumulate in your body, which can raise your blood pressure and result in kidney failure (end-stage kidney disease). End-stage renal disease occurs when the kidneys have lost about 90% of their ability to function normally.

Kidney transplant surgery is considered safe, and is usually very successful. A successful kidney transplant depends on how healthy you are before the transplant, taking care of yourself after your transplant, and closely following your doctors’ orders after the transplant.

Research has shown that patients who get a kidney from a living donor live longer than patients who get a kidney from a deceased donor (someone who has just died). On average, living kidney donor transplants last 15-20 years, and deceased kidney donor transplants last 10-15 years.
