Kidney Transplant

Kidney Failure

kidney transplant is used to treat kidney failure (end-stage kidney disease), a condition in which your kidneys can function at only a fraction of normal capacity. People with end-stage kidney disease need either to have waste removed from their bloodstream (dialysis) or a kidney transplant to stay alive. One of the main reasons for kidney failure in simple language are high blood pressure, diabetes, use of Non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs commonly called pain killers. In some cases patients with congenital kidney problem may also need a transplant.

Common causes of end-stage kidney disease include:

  •  Diabetes
  •  Chronic, uncontrolled high blood pressure
  •  Chronic glomerulonephritis — an inflammation and eventual scarring of the tiny filters within your kidneys (glomeruli)
  •  Polycystic kidney disease

Sometimes kidney disease can be managed with diet, medication and treatment for the underlying cause. If despite these steps your kidneys still can’t filter your blood adequately, you might be a candidate for a kidney transplant.

Finding A Donor for Kidney Transplant in India

 A near-relative (spouse, children, grandchildren, siblings, parents and grandparents) needs permission of the doctor in-charge of the transplant center to donate their kidney.

 A non-related donor needs permission of an Authorization Committee established by the state to donate his kidney.

 If a compatible living donor isn’t available, your name will be placed on a waiting list for a deceased-donor kidney. Because there are fewer available kidneys than there are people waiting for a transplant, the waiting list continues to grow. The waiting time for a deceased-donor kidney is usually a few years.

 Paired kidney donation may be an option if you’ve found someone willing to donate a kidney, but the donor’s blood and tissue aren’t compatible with yours. Rather than donating a kidney directly to you, your donor may give a kidney to a person whose blood and tissue is compatible with the donor’s kidney, and you receive a kidney from that transplantee’s donor.

Best Doctors and Cost

Dr Pradeep Bansal is one of the best Urologist for doing Kidney Transplant Surgery in India. He has more than 20 years of experience in doing all Nephrological and Urological Surgeries

The cost of kidney transplant surgery in India is in the range of USD 8000 – 12000 which includes the cost for the donor and the recipient. However the costs could vary depending upon the general health of the recipient and the co-morbidities present. Special medications are used more often than not to prevent the rejection of the kidney and the cost of these medications are in the range of USD 2000-3000 depending on the brand of the medicine.

The hospital stay for the donor is around 1-3 days and the hospital stay for the recipient is around 15 days

The patient needs to be under the observation of the nephrologist even after discharge from the hospital to make sure that nothing goes wrong and if there is any kind of problem then it is managed properly and in time to prevent the rejection of the transplanted kidney.

There are many touts in the Indian market who would promise to get you a donor for a price, you must stay clear of such people as this is an illegal act in India and both the recipient and the tout could land in trouble.
