Kidney Transplantation

Kidney transplantation or renal transplantation is the organ transplant of a kidney into a patient with end- stage renal disease. Kidney transplantation is typically classified as deceased-donor (formerly known as cadaveric) or living-donor transplantation depending on the source of the donor organ. Living-donor renal transplants are further characterized as genetically related (living-related) or non-related (living-unrelated) transplants, depending on whether a biological relationship exists between the donor and recipient.

Kidney transplantation was introduced at our hospital during 1996. We are conducting only living-donor kidney transplants. Most of these are living-related transplants, however a small percentage of living-unrelated transplants are also carried out after getting permission from the Appropriate Authority and respective Authorization Committee.

All transplants are strictly done as per the guidelines issued by the Appropriate Authority / DRME.
