Our highly skilled medical professionals assure timely care with respect to detection and prevention of renal (kidney) problems. The success rates of Renal (kidney) transplant at our hospitals in India is amongst the best in the world.
At the very outset, you may please note that as per the prevailing laws in India only an immediate family member of the patient who is a compatible can donate an organ. For any other relative to qualify as a organ donor, needs to take approval from a Government Authorisation Committee and then only an Indian Hospital shall proceed with the transplant surgery.
A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure to place a healthy kidney from a live or deceased donor into a person whose kidneys no longer function properly.
A person with stage 5 chronic kidney disease has end stage renal disease (ESRD). At this advanced stage of kidney disease, the kidneys lose their filtering ability and dangerous levels of fluid and waste accumulate in the body and eventually dialysis or a kidney transplant is needed to live.
Only one donated kidney is needed to replace two failed kidneys. If a compatible living donor isn’t available for a kidney transplant, then the patient’s name is placed on a kidney transplant waiting list to receive a kidney from a deceased donor. The wait is usually a few years.
Patients with a history of heart disease, lung disease, cancer, or hepatitis may not be suitable candidates for being a recipient or donor for a kidney transplant.
With the use of a video camera system via 1/2-inch incisions, a kidney can be surgically removed from a living donor. The surgery can be performed completely laparoscopically or hand assisted (use of a small incision to insert the hand into the abdominal cavity.
Using very small incisions, a special telescopic camera and specially designed instruments, the kidney is removed from the donor. The surgeon performs the surgery while looking at a TV monitor.
Before kidney transplantation procedure the doctor evaluates the donor and recipient. Evaluation determines whether a kidney transplant may be safe and beneficial for the patient or not. It also ensures that the donor is perfectly healthy at the time of donation and that he /she continues to lead a normal life after donation. Evaluation process may last two or three days and may include:
Once the patient is approved for a kidney transplant, the patient seeks out for potential living donor (among friends and family) or for a deceased donor kidney.
After the transplant, the patient usually stays in the hospital for three to four days to recover. After discharge, the patient need to stay near the hospital for two to three weeks so the doctors can monitor the new kidney function and recovery. Patients need to take immunosuppressant medications for life to keep ensure that the new transplanted kidney is accepted by the body.
Patients are given specific guidelines regarding medications that they will need to take, regarding diet they have to follow, lifestyle changes and mandatory follow up.
“My brother suffered from Kidney failure at a very young age, it was a family disaster for us and we all decided to put all our resources to give him a new lease of life. We extensively researched Kidney Transplant hospitals in India and came across IndiaCarez website. We called and with in a matter of few hours we had so much of valuable information sent to us. At every step from getting medical tests done here in Nigeria to preparing for legal documents, they helped us with very practical advice.
We arrived in India and were received at the airport. Everything that was promised to us by IndiaCarez was in fact even better than what we could have imagined.
