About Kidney transplant treatment procedure

Kidney transplantation is a life-saving treatment for persons with kidney failure since it extends their lives and improves their quality of life. This safe and effective technique entails removing and replacing one or both kidneys with a donor kidney from another person. Before transplantation, the donor and recipient undergoes detailed tests, which could take 4-5 days. At BLX Max Hospital, kidney transplantation is done only from living donors in case of international patients (Regulated and controlled by the Ministry of Health). The donor must be the relative of the patient and have blood group compatibility with the patient. If the blood group is not compatible, the patient needs to undergo Plasmapheresis therapy before kidney transplant. Documentary evidence for the relationship between the donor and the patient is to be submitted along with the evidence of identity and residence of the proposed donor. Suitable donors should in the age groups of 18-65 years, have no operation before, no disease history before. Only after the approval by the embassy in Delhi and government authorization committee approves the donor, will the transplant take place.

The success rate of kidney transplantation is relatively high, and many people who have this procedure report a significant improvement in their quality of life.
