Kidney Transplant, as the name suggests, is the replacement of a non – functional or terminally diseased kidney (End Stage Renal Disease) with that of a healthy one. Kidney transplantation is not a particularly difficult or complicated operation. It is the period after the surgery that is most critical. The transplant team will have to watch you carefully for a prolonged period of time to make sure that your new kidney is functioning properly and that your body is not rejecting it. A kidney donor may or may not be genetically related to the recipient, but according to HOTA, India (Human Organs Transplant Act) the donor can only be an immediate relative of the patient. Your treating nephrologist is the right person to guide you on your evaluation as a transplant prospective.
