A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure in which a person whose own kidneys have failed receives a new kidney to take over the blood purification function. The surgery is classified as a major one but advancements in medicine have greatly improved the success rates and the acceptability of donors who would some years ago have been rejected.
For Kidney Transplant the donations come from two sources: living donors and non-living donors. A living donor may be a family member, close friend or even a stranger who wishes to donate a kidney to anyone in need of a transplant.( In India donations by unrelated living donors require special approvals from the government). Deceased donor kidneys usually come from people who have willed their kidneys before their death.
Kidney transplant surgery usually lasts three to five hours. The damaged kidneys are usually left in place, with the new kidney being placed in the lower abdomen. The artery and vein of the new kidney will be attached to an artery and vein in the lower part of the abdomen, just above one of the legs. The new kidney’s ureter, the tube that links the kidney to the bladder, will be connected to the bladder.
The transplanted kidney may function immediately. In some cases the kidney begins to work only after a week or so. Soreness or pain around the surgery site is common.. The recovery time in the hospital is usually about seven days.
We advise patients from outside of India to come prepared for a 10-12 week stay, post-discharge, in the city where the transplant is done. This is to facilitate routine dressings initially and for monitoring thereafter.
